This is a terrible, pointless movie, that no doubt will mostly be checked out by fans of "The Band" the great rock group. It looks to me like Levon Helm, cast in a stereotypical role of a redneck sheriff, got his buddies(sans Robbie Robertson, who had long since stopped performing with the combo) involved.
This leads to one hilarious mishap, Garth Hudson not only isn't much of an actor, but he plays one of the few Vietnam Vet with a thick Canadian accent! Now there's a guy who believed in the war. Richard Manuel, who would tragicly kill himself not long after this, gets off the easiest with a very small role.
Bradford Dillman, a fine actor, has a really degrading role and has to wear an Elmer Fudd hat. Nice to see that things have gone well lately for Kathleen Quinlian, who really suffers for her art here.
