Synopsis

The venerable Western plot about the aging lawman tracking down and bringing in his long-ago pal who had turned bad and now was an escaped convict gets a fresh reworking thanks to the strong presences of both Robert Mitchum (as a safecracker who'd been sent up for life, only to be sprung by his long-lost niece who's trying to get her clutches on the cash he's stashed somewhere) and Wilford Brimley (the weary, sentimental ex-cop turned reluctant bounty hunter for the Feds).

Brimley, one of the most admired character actors on the contemporary scene, specializing in playing old codgers despite being just in his early fifties, provides the proper counterpoint to veteran actor Mitchum, close to 69 when the film was shot (as "The Last Run") in Dallas and Fort Worth.
