A forgotten gem
9 May 2003 | by (Rowland Heights CA) – See all my reviews

Thompson's Last Run was the first 35mm film that I ever worked on, and it was a great learning experience. Robert Mitchum and Wilford Brimley provided performances that were top-notch, and the rest of the cast really rose to the occasion. It was a real pleasure whenever the director, Jerrold Freeman, came into the editing room. It was also my first film working with Anthony Redman, ACE, a very talented editor.
