Tough Guys


1h 42m 1986

Brief Synopsis

Archie Long and Harry Doyle are a pair of old-time criminals, jailed for 30 years after committing the last train robbery in the US. Upon their release, Harry, the older of the two, must go to a nursing home, while Archie is offered a chance at menial employment. Neither will be allowed to contact the other for three years, a jarring proposition that doesn't sit well with either man. Meanwhile, Deke Yablonski, the lawman who arrested them, keeps an eye on Harry and Archie, convinced that they will return to a life of crime.
