Cheryl Ladd was not in this movie.
30 June 2000 | by (Fresno, CA) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite movies. Sam Elliott played such a wonderful part in it. He looks so sinister, secretive and pensive all the time. He was perfect for the part. I moved here from Houston. I used to drive past the house that this all took place in (San Felipe and Westheimer). Every time I drove by it, I would think of the movie. Anyone know where I could buy it?
