The Highwaymen (2019) Login/Join

Just stumbled across The Highwaymen, Set to be released by Netflix in March. Follows Frank Hamer and Maney Gault as they hunt down Bonnie and Clyde. I think the story of Frank Hamer was much more interesting than that of a couple of two bit thugs.

I may have to go back and reread Texas Ranger before watching this movie. The lawmen back in those days were a different breed for sure.

That looks good. Looking through your link it mentions they were planning to do a Newman/Redford version, but the death of Newman prevented that. That would have been epic.

Thanks for the heads up.
There are a few Lawman that I enjoy studying and reading about.. William Matthew "Bill" Tilghman Jr. , FBI Special Agent "Jelly" Bryce, Bass Reeves and of course Frank Hamer.

This could be interesting and fun.

It seems like this movie will be out in general release vs "Netflix" next month. Not surprising considering the quality of the cast.

Although the author is quite obviously coming from "Left field", this is a pretty good book on Hamer's life and times.

Interesting episode of The Way I Heard It by Mike Rowe on Ted Hinton, the youngest member of Frank Hamer’s posse
