About half way through the movie, Johnny goes to Pookie's motel room. As he knocks at the door, the microphone is seen. Then as he is in her room and says, "What's the Beef" the microphone is very clearly seen for almost a minute. See more »
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.
