Storyline

Mordecai Jones (George C. Scott) is a rural con artist (a 'flim flam man') who takes on a young army deserter Curley (Michael Sarrazin) as his protégé and teaches him the tricks of the trade. Sheriff Slade (Harry Morgan) is in hot pursuit of the pair and rich girl Bonnie Lee Packard (Sue Lyon) becomes romantically involved with Curley and helps the fleeing duo stay one step ahead of the sheriff. The film features a great automobile chase scene for those who appreciate this kind of cinema hijinks. Screenplay by William Rose ("It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World"). Written by alfiehitchie

George C. Scott alone is worth seeing the film.
6 November 2003 | by (Olympic Penninsula) – See all my reviews

Anyone who has seen Patton,and enjoyed that and other performances of George C. Scott, should see this film just to marvel at the range and abilities of this classic stage actor. A strong supporting cast make this a delightful comedic romp by this giant of an American actor.
