Description by OLDIES.com:
Vonetta McGee is the female bounty hunter who resumes an old romance with bandit Bushrod (Julien). Amid the changes transforming the country at the beginning of the twentieth century -- cars replace horses and trails turn to roads -- the "wild" west of the 1900s is gradually being tamed. It's still a tough, hard place to make a living, but Thomasine and Bushrod are prepared to try. Hounded by Sheriff Bogardie (George Murdock), they proceed on a spree of bank robberies, sharing their loot with the poor living on the harsh frontier. Bushrod's old buddy, Jomo (Glynn Turman), turns up just when they need him most, and the trio plan their next heist together.
THOMASINE AND BUSHROD was intended as the African American counterpart to BONNIE AND CLYDE, the difference being that the story in this case is utterly fictional. Vonette McGee plays Thomasine, and Max Julien (who also wrote and coproduced the film) is Bushrod. They are a pair of thieves, operating in the southwest between 1911 and 1915. Fancying themselves as Robin Hoods and the White Establishment as the Sheriff of Nottingham, Thomas and Bushrod steal only from Caucasian capitalists, then distribute the booty to Mexicans, Native Americans and poor whites. George Murdock is the redneck sheriff who dogs their trail.
