Goofs

When they are at the football game, close up shots of the band were done earlier during the week and the field was dry. Long shots were done on an actual game on a rainy Saturday, so there are two colors of Astroturf being shown back and forth. See more »

as a Texan, I liked it...
16 April 2003 | by (Houston, TX) – See all my reviews

This is definitely a drive-in flick, and I saw it at the drive-in here in Houston in the late 70's.

I've been listening to the soundtrack of "The Harder They Come" and it occurred to me that there are similarities in this drive-flick and the reggae cult classic. The heroes are on the run, and are recording artists (talented in Jimmy Cliff's case, supposedly "talented" in Fonda's case).

Well, I had my say.
