I'd never heard of Kris Kristofferson until I saw this movie in a double feature. I'd gone to see the other feature, which I now forget. This was so good, I got bored with the other feature. I immediately bought Kristofferson's early albums and went back to see this a second time. I haven't seen it since but I can remember dialog and scenes, including one which evidently includes a Jack Elliot character. It's a good, basic thriller plot raised well above the average by the acting, the directing, the script and the ambiance. I, too, would love to own it on DVD and shelve it up there with the ten or twenty movies I'm always happy to watch again. Kristofferson was never better. A forgotten 70s classic, far and away better than many of the better known movies of the period.
