The word 'neat' is said 14 times in the movie. See more »
Abel Marsh says he voted for Harry Truman, but he also says he is 40-years-old. Assuming that the movie takes place in 1972 when it was released, he would have been 16 years old in 1948 when Truman was elected, too young to vote in any state of the Union. See more »
[Dumping two shot glasses of bourbon into his beer]
I, uh, once read where Harry Truman used to drink triple-bourbons for lunch. When I read that... I voted for him.

This is a cute little movie that is of"B" quality but better than most and certainly better than most TV Movies. In the story there is a beautiful Doberman named Murphy who is believed killed someone. I won't disclose the ending. There is a chemistry among all the actors that keep the movie together. I read lately that this was the last movie that this particular movie company made before the backlot was bulldozed for another use. I had a Doberman after this movie and I called him Murphy in memory of him. Absolutely worth watching at least once. Not to be confused with the other James Garner movie called "Murphy's Romance".
