Amazing Performance from Marjoe Gortner!
14 June 2006 | by (Rain City, Pacific Northwest) – See all my reviews

Marjoe Gortner's performance in this film will amaze you. He holds your attention the way a snake will stare down its prey to keep it docile and thoroughly cowed until dying time. One gets a taste of the incredible reserves of passion and energy he exuded as a preacher in his performance here as a scruffy criminal who holds a disparate group of characters hostage in a roadside diner in the middle of New Mexico.(For more on this amazing man watch 1972's Oscar-winning MARJOE)

Gortner is supported by a fine cast which includes Hal Linden, Lee Grant,Peter Firth and Pat Hingle, among others. This is another one of those undeservedly unknown movies that will really knock your socks off if you can manage to see it anywhere. Highly recommended.
