AN ATYPICAL WESTERN WITH RICHARD FARNSWORTH ("A TRUE STORY" BY DAVID LYNCH)
BASED ON THE STORY OF “GENTLEMAN BANDIT” BILL MINER, CANADIAN FOLKLORE HERO
On June 17, 1901, after thirty-three years of detention in San Quentin prison, stagecoach thief Bill Miner, nicknamed “The Gentleman Bandit”, was released. Determined to settle down, he returns to his sister but is quickly overtaken by the taste for action. After attending the screening of The Flight of the Great Rapids, and despite his advanced age, Bill decides to embark on the attack on trains...
Superbly photographed by Frank Tidy ( The Duelists ), The Gray Fox portrays the fictionalized portrait of the famous bandit Bill Miner, charismatic hero of this atypical western, as tender as it is poetic. Unforgettable in David Lynch ( A true story ), Richard Farnsworth is extraordinary in this role of outlaw from another time, renowned for his good manners. Considered one of the greatest Canadian films of all time, The Gray Fox is available for the first time on Blu-ray™ in its 4K restoration.
