Just okay film probably would play best at a drive-in with a second car chase feature
9 April 2006 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

A man on parole, in love with his bosses married daughter, robs a bank and then runs off to Mexico with the daughter in tow.

If you've ever wondered what Southern drive-in fare was like in the early 1970's, look no farther. This is the sort of low budget movie that played all along the South during the boom days of the drive-in movie theater. My guess this would have been the second or third feature of a multi feature program.

While this is not the best movie in the world (an understatement) it does have a certain nostalgic charm, at least for me. I like the fact that Dub Taylor, a character actor who's work goes all the way back to the Frank Capra movies of the 1930's is allowed to play something close to a lead. The movie itself is just okay, but its clearly a film that never could stand on its own except as a filler on a multi feature program.

Is it worth seeing? As a stand alone feature probably not, but if you're going to have a night of movies you might want to throw this one into the mix, especially if you're doing an evening of country themed drive-in movies.
