Trivia

Reportedly, Gene Hackman's salary for this picture has been estimated at being between US $1.25 and US $1.50 million. According to Mark Litwak's 1986 book, 'Reel Power: The Struggle for Influence and Success in the New Hollywood', talent agent Sue Mengers said that "it was almost obscene for him not to do the film" with the amount of money he was being offered to do the picture.

Rookie moonshiners run afoul of the government and other criminals
6 February 2004 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

Interesting little comedy featuring 3 down on their luck folks who, during the depression, formed a coalition to run booze past the coast guard. Turns out the CG is the least of their woes as a psychotic rumrunner decides to take over the entire area and rub out any who stand in his path. Good shootout as a finale with a multitude of boats gunning it out in a Pacific cove. Good one.
