Pic of the Day: “The Outfit” revisited

Today’s pic is another one from John Flynn‘s The Outfit (1973). Earl Macklin (Robert Duvall) is about to put the hurt big time on mean thug Jake Menner.

The Outfit

Duvall has been one of our most gifted actors since the early 1960s, when he began appearing in series television, anthologies and Westerns. He hit the big time with his unforgettable turn as Boo Radley in Robert Mulligan‘s To Kill a Mockingbird (1962). Fifty-two years, one Best Actor Oscar (1983’s Tender Mercies), numerous other awards and nominations, and many classic films and performances later, he’s still going strong.
