Best known as the Texas lawman who played the major role in bringing down Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow on May 23, 1934, Frank Hamer was already a legend before that bloody shootout in Bienville Parish, Louisiana - the final act of a long and courageous career.
There is more to Hamer's story than the ambush of the two outlaws. His career spanned the times of western law enforcement from horseback and Winchester days to the invention of the telephone and automobile. During that time, he built a reputation as an incorruptible lawman, fearless, a good man with a gun whether on horseback or behind the wheel of a Ford V8, or facing a violent mob. He survived 52 gunfights and 23 bullet wounds.
Old, tired Cooper Lydell goes back to work to keep himself and his son afloat after Tommy is injured in an accident. Unfortunately, quitting one lousy job for another only makes things worse. Yes, Florida was hot and humid, but Bemidji, Minnesota?? Not only does the job suck, but the sheriff won't let them leave.
