Oddball movie
8 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

Don Murray plays a down-and-out drunken "redskin" rodeo clown accused of murder (wow) in this early 1970s noble-loner flick. The movie is worth checking out if you're interested in either Don Murray or Rip Torn. Both of them give performances that sometimes go over the top, but there are fine, more subtle moments as well. Don Murray's drunken Indian dance is quite strange. The film seems dated in many ways (akin to the Billy Jack movies), but it's not bad.

Note: The film's credits list Christopher Knight of the Brady Bunch, and I had read somewhere else that he did this movie, but I didn't see him in it anywhere.
