Watch The Grey Fox - Alternative Versions.
This really is a masterpiece of film - and, unfortunately, largely
unknown to the greater film-watching public in the United States. It is
beautiful to watch, to listen to (with its soundtrack including both
original work by award-winning composer Michael Conway Baker, of
Canada, and the Chieftains), and to examine as a chronicle of the
period that concluded the Wild West's grasp on the 19th Century and its
reach for the 20th.
Bill Miner, the "Gentleman Bandit," was a historical figure whose long
prison term for stagecoach robbery left him entirely unprepared
(vocationally) for his release back into society - a society that was
now devoid of stagecoaches, and beginning to discover the wonders of
motorcars and moving pictures.
The 29-year-old director, Phillip Borsos (1953-1995), made this film
tribute to the last outlaw of the Wild West and to the region that he
lived in. While others might have gone heavy-handed and clichéd in such
a production, Borsos' eye and ear both figure significantly in the
film's direction, and its numerous examples of originality:
- a senior citizen star (the late Richard Farnsworth - whose Hollywood
career had started as a stuntman, in Westerns - playing Bill Miner as a
thoughtful and kind gentleman) who even gets to look hunky;
- a respectful treatment of an early 20th Century feminist (played by
- cinematography that highlights the beauty of the Pacific Northwest,
rather than some anonymous California desert;
- a soundtrack that ISN'T Coplandesque (or Morriconesque);
- a 'cowboy picture' where the hero gets the girl, but doesn't get
vulgar or trite or even testosterone-driven; AND
- an accurate look at the turn-of-the-century a hundred years ago in a
landscape that hasn't entirely disappeared. Yet.
I have hummed the music from its tuneful soundtrack since the first
time I saw it in its initial U.S. theatrical release, and have wanted
to visit Kamloops, BC, ever since. If you can stand movies without
gratuitous pyrotechnics or violence, don't let another day go by
without checking out this film classic.
