On the Run - Starring Paul Winfield, Rod Taylor, and Beau Cox. This is a very intense film.and Winfield is outstanding, as always he carries the film. The story concerns Harry (Winfield) who takes care of the estate belonging to his boss. One day, a Social worker brings to the house a young boy (Cox), she explains he is an orphan and that Harry's boss is the lad's Uncle. When the boss (Taylor) returns home, he feigns concern for the lad and leaves him in Harry's care as he has some "business" to take care of. Harry is reluctant to be involved with the boy, and worse yet, the nephew speaks only French, which Harry cannot speak. When some violent men come looking for his boss and kill two pet dogs, Harry shields the boy and when his boss returns some unexpected developments occur, Harry has a change of heart. Now Harry must use his wits and some of his boss's cash to protect the youngster from harm, and try to extricate himself from an ever tightening web of violence. Some extremely exciting edge of your seat moments. Also contains some humor and touching moments. Notably, the developing relationship between the boy and Winfield is very well done. Viewers will be very satisfied with this unusual entry into the film legacy of the late Paul Winfield, whom I consider to be one of the finest black actors of his day. Other Winfield films include: Sounder, Twilight's Last Gleaming, and White Dwarf
