This Is Not a Robbery (2008) When he was arrested for holding up a bank in Abilene, Texas, in 2003, J.L. “Red” Rountree — then aged 91 — won fame as the world’s oldest active bank robber. But behind the bizarre headlines was a far more curious question: why would a formerly successful businessman with an untarnished record embark on a life of crime at age 87? Documentary filmmakers Lucas Jansen and Adam Kurland investigate Rountree’s unlikely life story with help from friends, family, witnesses and a rare audio interview Rountree recorded shortly before his death in 2004.
