A lovely Western about a professional stagecoach robber known as "The Gentleman Bandit" who emerges into the 20th Century (barely - it's 1901) after 33 years in prison and has to figure out what to do with himself. He's lost and adrift unable to fit in living with his sister and unable to settle into an ordinary job (though his eyes reveal twinkling delight as he observes the new world). Then he sees a movie by Edwin S. Porter: "The Great Train Robbery". He's found his new calling.
Adventure, misadventure, romance, and much beautiful scenery follow, though all of it is played in a low-key casual manner. The romance is especially endearing as an obvious meeting of equals and the romance quietly drives the rest of the film to its amusing and perfect conclusion.
