Very special for me as my grandfather has a bit part in it.

The movie is actually set in the town of Kerrville, Texas and came on the heels of a movie made there the year before (Pony Express Rider). My grandfather has a bit part in the movie as the judge in Willies dream sequence. It has taken me over 3 years to find a copy of this movie as it went directly to TV and had a limited video release. The story is OK and the acting is adequate while the FX leaves a lot to be desired even by 1978 standards.
