Great performance by Mark Hamill
17 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

Mark Hamill plays a young man who's father abandoned him as a child and he has always focused his hate on a country singer played by real life singer Jimmy Dean. He actually thinks Dean is his REAL father. Hamill tracks Dean down and tries to kill him. Meanwhile, Robert Forster and Don Johnson are the cops hot on his trail. This is one of many 70s TV appearances by Hamill and one of his best performances. It's hard to say if he filmed this movie before or after Star Wars since they came out at around the same time. This movie was supposedly the pilot for Quinn Martin's Tales of the Unexpected TV series. The theme music was different but William Conrad's narration was used. This narration definitely added a certain quality to the series.
