Willie the outlaw the scamp lovable outlaw....the line between fiction and fact is at best blurry. Simply put he was placed to be himself. Kris Kristofferson a man troubled by strained relationships his own biography and story lend credibility to the story. For those Hill country Outlawsnatives of this section of Texas love the romp through familiar territory, the Salt Lick a real Barbque Joint, Robert Mueller Airportnow closed. As a Texas Ranger distant struggling with his own emotions Kris Kristofferson who wrote "Bobby McGee", "Help Me Make It ThroughThe Night" is very believable. The friendship the two have comes in the movie. Like other movies Kris Kristofferson played this is not high art this a picture show. For those in love and familiar with the Texashill country this is great romp. Forget the red hots and pop corn with acoke grab a ound of brisket a Shiner Bock prop your feet up and enjoy.
