Robert Duvall

“The Great Northfield, Minnesota Raid” The veteran actor, who just won an Emmy for the western TV miniseries, “Broken Trail,” gives James a psychotic bent in writer/director Philip Kaufman’s 1972 revisionist account of the James-Younger gang. He’s far more of a thug and a hot-head than his partner in crime, Cole Younger (Cliff Robertson), i.e., Jesse James: “We’ll make this smug Yankee town weep, or we’ll blow it to kingdom come!” Cole Younger:” No, we ain’t either, Jesse. Only a fool smokes up a town when it ain’t necessary”
