Outlaw Brothers: The Making of The Long Riders

OUTLAW BROTHERS: THE MAKING OF THE LONG RIDERS features in-depth interviews with director Walter Hill and cast members James Keach and Robert Carradine. »The documentary highlights the importance of the Keach brothers (who play Jesse and Frank James) in the genesis of the project. The brothers initially wrote the script and pitched the idea to the Carradine and Quaid brothers, before the arrival of director Walter Hill involved. At the time Hill was coming of the back of the success of THE WARRIORS, and his enthusiasm for making his first western convinced United Artists to give the film the green light. James Keach talks at great length about the mythology of Jesse James, and how he wanted to depict the surly, angry young man who he believed James was, rather than the way he had been depicted up until that point. David Carradine’s legacy provides several warmly remembered anecdotes for Hill and co, with Hill remembering Carradine’s response to a reporter who said his performance had stolen the movie. ‘I didn’t steal it. I won it fair and square’, came the withering response.« (Robert Munro, Eye For Film)
