While I liked Dave O'Brien, I did not like this film...
PRC was a very tiny studio with the lowest of budgets. One big way they saved money was to pay their writers practically nothing for their scripts--and it's painfully obvious in "The Man Who Walked Alone". While I enjoyed the leading man, Dave O'Brien, he just couldn't make up for a script that was written for peanuts.
The film begins with O'Brien trying to thumb for a ride--and with no success. So, in desperation, he tries what an annoying farmer tells him--and jumps into the road at the next car. Well, it causes a minor accident and instant hatred erupts between the lady driver and O'Brien....and it was a cliché that the two would soon fall in love. But, in the meantime, some kooky things occur and they go to jail TWICE and yet they somehow have gone from hating the sight of each other to making eyes at each other--something that made no sense at all. In fact, the writer seemed to toss in many story elements--few that worked and the plot just seemed forced and quite contrived. None of it was believable or made sense--and I really couldn't wait for this ultra-cheapie to end.
