Although this film did not garner much attention upon it's release, it
is notable in that it's lead character was not a professional actor.
Elroy Hirsch, a pro football player, gave a wonderful performance as an
"everyman" who represented how an average person could be lost in a
strange world - a prison system.
Mr. Hirsch died recently. His forte was in sports and his acting was peripheral to his sport career, but his solo effort in film work was sincere and emotional - perhaps on a level that could not be felt by a pro actor.
I was saddened to learn of his passing, not only because of his feats on the gridiron, but because he had ventured heroically onto the field of film and had given it his best - we could expect no less of a man like Crazylegs. RIP.
