Additional Information

Thieves Like Us (1974) Directed by Robert Altman. Robert Altman’s humanistic portrayal of a group of rural bank-robbers in the 1930s characteristically tempers its sketch of big-dreaming small timers with an affectionate appreciation of their emotional stakes; especially a tender love story that forms at the heart of the story under the pendulous promise of almost certain violence.

Buffalo Bill and the Indians, or Sitting Bull's History Lesson (1976) Directed by Robert Altman. “Buffalo” Billy Cody’s Wild West Show is an entertainment phenomenon, featuring staged “battles” between Indians and cavalry. But swaggering Buffalo Bill faces an unexpected contest of symbolism when the actual vanquished Chief Sitting Bull is hired to become part of the show.
