A perfect rebel pursuing a perfectly respectable girl!
I saw this for the first time when I was about 11 years old. Of course, I then had a crush on Don Johnson in "Miami Vice". I am 32 years old now and am still swept away by this movie. I recorded it off regular TV, back in the day. As I have grown older, I love it even more. I don't play it often now as it is completely recorded verbatim in my memory. (plus my vcr recording is wearing thin!) I am not the romantic type, but this movie makes me feel like the romanticized fantasy of a hero of a man pursuing a woman. In this movie there is treachery, scheming, seduction, suspicion, heroism, compassion, and improbable luck. The plot is very basic; people believing their morals are better than the other. White is better than black. Rich is better than poor. I object! The strenght of the oppressed stereotype, rich and race, is exploded all over the screen! Give it a try! It is 3 hours long, but well worth the fantasy!
