The greatest movie of all time!, 26 May 2002
Author: Budfrump2 from USA

"Thunder In Dixie" represents a great triumph in the American film industry. To this date, no other film has come nearly as close to capturing the true meaning of the human spirit and what we as human beings have to offer the world. The acting is superb, as Harry Millard brilliantly captures Mickey Arnold's struggle to come to grips with the reality that Lillie Arnold (Judy Lewis) and Ticker Welsh (Mike Bradford) aren't the people he once thought they were. However, the film will be remembered most for Richard Kuss' brief, but unforgettable appearance as the hilariously comical Link Duggan; allowing the film to have shining moments of comedy in the midst of its darkly dramatic storyline. I truly believe that this is the greatest movie of all time, and will be remembered as such for generations to come.
