ROBERT DUVALL & JOE DON BAKER STEAL FROM 'THE OUTFIT'

Sheree North & Robert Duvall poster art YEAR: 1973 Rates: ***
After serving two years in prison, a paroled bank robber learns his brother was killed (shown in the prologue) by the same mob that set him up. So he gets all kinds of revenge with the help of his former partner/sidekick while cranky gun moll Karen Black basically goes against the grain of the boys crashing various hot spots where the money's at (Sheree North would have fit this role better)...

The two main characters played by Robert Duvall and Joe Don Baker seem so protected by the gods, there's little urgency or suspense since nothing and no one can stop them...

Meanwhile, the targeted mobsters include Film Noir icons Timothy Carey and Robert Ryan, and THE OUTFIT has a Neo Noir template combined with a modern day Western's guns, guts and bravado. And about the only challenge is assassin Felice Orlandi, moving through night shadows after the small town boys do all their stealing and shooting in the daylight. Making this a kind of CLYDE AND CLYDE meets THE GETAWAY.
Nice and simple VHS for THE OUTFIT with Robert Duvall and Karen Black
