LEGENDARY director Walter Hill’s classic take on the Western, The Long Riders, makes its Blu-ray debut courtesy of Second Sight Films on Monday, June 3, 2013.
The film follows the exploits of the infamous Jesse James/Cole Younger gang made all the more authentic by Hill’s casting of real life brothers David, Keith and Robert Carradine, James and Stacy Keach, Dennis and Randy Quaid and Christopher and Nicholas Guest.
The Long Riders comes to Blu-ray for the first time along with a fantastic slew of special features, including Outlaw Brothers: The Making of The Long Riders with Walter Hall, James Keach and Robert Carradine, The Norhfield Minnesota Raid: Anatomy of a Scene with Walter Hill, James Keach and Robert Carradine and Slow Motion: Walter Hill on Sam Pekinpah.
In post-Civil War America the legendary band of outlaws blaze a trail across the west, culminating in the infamous Northfield, Minnesota bank raid and one of the most acclaimed and explosive climaxes ever committed to film.
With stunning cinematography and an evocative Ry Cooder soundtrack and inspiration drawn from John Ford to Sam Peckinpah, Walter Hill’s The Long Riders is an elegiac portrait of a bygone era and one of the last great Westerns of the 20th Century.
