The Newton Boys

  • Theatrical - Wide 2002-05-21

The true story of America’s most successful bank robbers. From 1919 to 1924, they robbed over eighty banks from Texas to Canada, capping their career with America’s largest train robbery, a three million dollar mail train heist outside of Chicago. From a poor upbringing as cowboys and cotton farmers the brothers brought their frontier-born “code of the west” into the roaring twenties, considering themselves not gunfighters, but “businessmen.” True to their aims, they never killed anyone in spite of the mayhem they caused, stealing “more money than Jesse James, Butch, Sundance, Bonnie and Clyde and the Dalton brothers put together,” says leader Willis Newton.
