Just a lot of moonshine
7 January 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

I have seen Dick Clark in a couple of films before and once on the farewell episode of the Perry Mason series and he did turn in some creditable performances. Killers Three was produced, partially written and he was one of the three killers. Set in post World War II North Carolina this is about Clark, Robert Walker, Jr., and Diane Varsi who go Bonnie and Clyde and become notorious fugitives.

Walker is making a good living supporting Varsi and her child which isn't his, but whom he has adopted. A visit from war buddy Clark changes everything as Clark convinces him to rob a known bootlegger when he learns where the bootlegger hides his money.

Everything goes wrong with this genius plan they cook up and they're on the run. Given the parameters of this kind of film you know it won't end up good.

Clark is absolutely laughable as a killer, Walker and Varsi both sleep walk through the film. Merle Haggard acts in the film as a local sheriff, but on the plus side does several songs for the soundtrack. His fans might like Killers Three for that.

But everyone else, stay away from this badly distilled moonshine.
