Tell Them Willie Boy Is Here is a modern western classic based on the true story of a Pauite Indian named Willie Boy (Robert Blake, Busting, In Cold Blood) and his bride Lola (Katharine Ross, The Graduate, The Stepford Wives), who become the objects of the last great western manhunt after Willie Boy kills Lola’s father in a “marriage by capture.” The manhunt, led by Sheriff Christopher Cooper (Robert Redford, Legal Eagles, The Sting), turns into a media circus when President Taft comes to visit the area and a mishap becomes twisted by the newspapers of the day. Released in 1969, Tell Them Willie Boy Is Here was a triumph for Redford and was called by Time Magazine, “A subtle, intense document of racial persecution that stands as one of the finest films of the year.” Written and directed by formerly blacklisted Abraham Polonsky (Force of Evil) and featuring stunning on-location cinematography by the great Conrad Hall (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid). The wonderful cast includes Susan Clark (Valdez Is Coming), Barry Sullivan (Planet of the Vampires), John Vernon (The Outlaw Josey Wales) and Charles McGraw (The Narrow Margin).


Blu-ray Extras Include:

NEW Audio Commentary by Actor/Filmmaker Pat Healy and Film Historian Jim Healy
