On October 11, 1923, Ray, Roy, and Hugh d'Autremont held up Train #13, of the Southern Pacific Railroad just outside of Ashland, Oregon. Four train men were murdered. The brothers were found four years later and sentenced to life in prison. The Crime of the d'Autremont Brothers is a one-hour documentary detailing this 'last great American train robbery.' The story is told through their lawyer who fought for their parole, and a documentary filmmaker who struggled to make a 1973 documentary on the subject.
