Wish They'd Show This Sometime
19 November 2000 | by (West Chester, Pa) – See all my reviews

Warren Oates is superb as an arsonist with a purpose in this B-movie gem (in TV-movie form). So obscure it has no Maltin summary and is unavailable on VHS or DVD. Used to be shown more regularly on the tube, haven't seen it listed for years. Watch for Tom Selleck in a very early role for him; Arthur Kennedy is solid as one half of the police team trying to nab Oates.
