typical 1970's television fare, funny and optimistic
27 January 2000 | by (Dundas, Ontario) – See all my reviews

By chance I was able to see this movie on TV, while on vacation.At first I was interested in watching the 1970's TV movie icon Dennis Weaver in action. But this unassuming film took me by surprise. Yes, it seemed corny at first, but the sad plot and Weavers' acting was infectious. He is a master at playing the shafted straight shooter. Coupled with the country soundtrack and the dismal scenery you really felt for Lonnie and his plight, as he ran from one disaster to another searching for his two sons. A solid simple movie with a sound moral thread running through it.
