I Really Liked The Film
9 May 2007 | by (arizona) – See all my reviews

As I write this, MOON FIRE's director is the only person to write about the film on IMDb. I saw it on Phoenix, Arizona television in the early 1980s, and was quite taken with it. In fact, it was shown quite regularly on broadcast TV then, and I watched it more than once. I am saddened that I have never found the film on video, nor have I ever found a recording of Marty Robbins' song, "Wheel of Life", used as the theme music for the film. My only quibble with the film is with the use of Richard Egan; he is introduced as the star at the beginning of the film, then suddenly and unexpectedly disappears until the final sequence (indicating some production problems with him, perhaps?), yet he received star billing. Overall, one of my favorite low-budget films, and one I haven't seen in 20 years, and would love to again. Michael Parkhurst, where are you?
