Originally broadcast 6 weeks or so after the suicide of Hugh O'Connor. Ironically, one of Hugh's first lines of dialogue in the movie was when his character recalled a warning he once gave to an alcoholic woman: "You're gonna hurt someone or you're gonna kill yourself". See more »


While talking to the Chief, Sgt. Shepard says the gun was a 44 Colt Magnum. There is no such caliber, it is a 44 Remington magnum or usually just called a 44 magnum, which was introduced in the 1950's. The 44 Colt was a caliber introduced in 1871 and used in revolvers in the old west. See more »

Wonderful Movie
17 January 1999 | by (Madison,Ohio) – See all my reviews

This is a very good movie. It not only told a story but it taught you how drinking can ruin so many lifes. If you look back at all the movies Carroll O'Connor has been in they all teach a great lesson about how to live your life. This one told of love and friendship and what happens when you don't believe in yourself and you turn to drinking.
