Cast: Robert Duvall, Joe Don Baker, Karen Black
When career criminal Earl (Duvall) is released from prison, he learns he is a target of a syndicate who own a bank Earl robbed. Teaming up with old pals Cody (Baker) and Bett (Black), Earl tries to beat the mob at their own game. The cast of this stripped-down crime story is positively teeming with film noir icons: Timothy Carey, Marie Windsor, Jane Greer, Elisha Cook, Richard Jaeckel, and, in one of his final movies, the great Robert Ryan. An adaptation of one of several “Parker” novels by Donald E. Westlake (writing as Richard Stark), The Outfit is a spiritual sequel of sorts to John Boorman’s Point Blank (1967).
