A note from Senior Programmer Andrew Jupin: The Grey Fox is a great example of one of the biggest joys of repertory film programming. Here is a Canadian western, starring a soft-spoken stuntman-turned-actor, the first feature film from a director who is not a household name in the slightest, that’s been more or less forgotten since its release nearly four decades ago… and it’s excellent. Sometimes a film being lost to time by pop culture and the filmgoing public at large is not always a solid barometer for the quality of said film. It’s why restorations and re-releases of films like The Grey Fox by companies like Kino Lorber are so crucial to the continued historical appreciation of this medium. It’s also just a darn good movie that I’m happy we’re able to share with our audiences. Farnsworth was never better. Don’t sleep on this one!
About The Grey Fox:
1982. ~89 m. Phillip Borsos. Kino Lorber. Canada. English. PG.
After decades in prison, stagecoach robber Bill Miner (Richard Farnsworth, The Straight Story) emerges in 1901 a free man without a place in 20th century society…until he sees The Great Train Robbery and is inspired to once again do what he does best. Venturing north to Canada, Miner conceals his identity in a small mining town and forms a relationship with a local photographer (Jackie Burroughs, The Dead Zone), all while getting a new crew together and hoping the Law doesn’t catch up with him as he robs the rails.
