Great movie, 12 May 2006
Author: splittgerber2 from United States

I am pleased that IMDb will include me in the credits as an actor in this special of Quinn-Martin. I played the RED NECK with the scene in front of the Federal Building when I grab Wayne Rodgers and start the conversation with: "Your n' Fbi feller ain't ya!" He responds: "yes sir, what can I do for you?". My response (and I'll not bore you with all of it) but starts: "You kin catch them Klan up Sayville way and give em sum taste of what they been handing Nigras...etc When this was filmed in front of the San Marcos, Tx Post Office (Federal Bldg) people watching applauded!!! It was MY scene. Mr. Rodgers as I walk aways says: "Thank You very Much"...I added a line: 'TWO BIT BUNCH OF WHITE TRASH" (meaning Klu Klux Klan) and the nice Director of the film LEFT IT IN...Thanks for reading this....Tommy
