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 fans shouldn't miss this one.
4 October 2001 | by (North Hemis) – See all my reviews

Wry comedy-drama with an appropriately larger-than-life performance by George C. Scott. The great supporting cast includes Henry Morgan and Slim Pickens, excellent as always, plus Michael Sarrazin in a more animated performance than usual. Expert use of some off-the-beaten-path Southern locales. The script is quite perceptive in its view of mankind's flaws and foibles. A fun, slapsticky car chase, too. If you can convince your viewing companions to pass up the usual "New Releases" drivel and take a chance on this one, you'll be well-rewarded.
