Good Mystery movie. Griffith always plays a good sheriff !
18 November 1998 | by (Novi, Michigan) – See all my reviews

Anything Andy Griffith plays in as a sheriff is usually good. This movie keeps the viewer in suspense until (almost) the end, when it becomes apparent who the villain is. Interesting, and nice scenery.
