I remember this movie! My folks took me to see it in the theater when I was a little kid. The director was my mother's-cousin's-wife or some such thing... we evidently went to three of his now-obscure films including this one, Winterhawk, and the Winds of Autumn. I recall that the three screen theater had a display in the lobby featuring a mock-up of a moonshine still. It's all very vague to me now, yet I am somehow fascinated. It amuses me that was also shown as "Bootleggers' Angel" when Jaclyn Smith became famous in Charlie's Angels. Did she even have much of a role in this movie? I certainly don't remember her in it, but, then, I was pretty young. I would love to take a peak at this old movie again one of these days just to see what it's like many years down the road.
