Kyle Hanson is a Vietnam veteran whose traumatic war-time experiences have left him unable to rejoin mainstream society. When Kyle, unkempt and in dirty fatigues, stops in a small town for some food, the local bullies can't wait for an opportunity to harass him. After Kyle uses his Special Forces training to escape the bullies, he becomes the subject of a community-wide manhunt. Only Jenny Bellows, a local girl whose husband was declared missing in action in Vietnam, is willing to give Kyle a chance.Written by
After Kyle is first chased off the road, he quickly assembles a bow and arrow from wood. Dirk Benedict actually built the makeshift weapon in one take, but unfortunately this cannot be seen as the film cuts between him and the other characters. The handmade bow really worked, and was used in the following scene rather than being replaced by another prop. See more »
Shots of Kyle driving red pick-up that he escapes in are shown mirrored back-to-front in several shots - the steering wheel is clearly on the wrong side. See more »
That dude sittin' on the curb over there, he out of your old outfit?
Hell, that dude ain't never been in no outfit, probably bought that coat at the Army Surplus.
I thought maybe he mighta' been one of the guys you trained, Sarge.
Well if you got down wind of him, he'd probably smell more like a cowboy. Whaddya think of that, pig farmer?

I watched this movie for the first time when I was in elementary school. They showed it only because it was filmed in the town that I live in. I never remembered the name of it, and always wondered about it. A friend of mine just gave me a copy of it to show my children what our town used to look like. I had no clue it was the same movie, and was ecstatic when I realized it was the same one. It was filmed in the towns of Knights Landing, and Woodlnad California. Its great to see and recognize where everything is filmed. We still live in the same area, and ride our bikes along the same paths as were filmed in the movie. The kids love knowing that something exciting once happened in the small town they live in. I would love to find more movies that were made in this area, but have had a hard time finding any leads. The movie is comical, more than anything else, in my opinion but all the while entertaining. We all loved it, and it is definitely one we can watch more than once. I gave this movie a "10" only because of where it was filmed, and my personal attachment to the area.
