Lorna Bellstratton: Dear Jack, How does one thank someone for saving there life? Maybe if we had a proper good-bye, I would have found the words. But, I don't know. My track record with words seems to get me into trouble. I know you said we probably won't ever see one another again, but I can't help but hope that maybe someone like you could meet someone like me and maybe, somehow, make it work. I miss you, Jack. Lorna.
Jack Walsh: Ha!

Great Fun
28 June 2005 | by james676See all my reviews

Before Hercules and Xena, the WB Network produced great made for TV movies. VANISHING SON, BANDIT (a spin-off of SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT) and THE MIDNIGHT RUN films. MIDNIGHT RUN FOR YOUR LIFE was fantastic. Christopher McDonald as the Robert DeNiro tough-guy bounty hunter with a heart was charming, funny, very entertaining. The beautiful Melora Walters (prior to BOOGIE NIGHTS and MAGNOLIA) is sweet as the lovable Lorna. I loved this movie, and luckily was smart enough to video tape it in 1994. I recently dug it out and enjoyed it again. It is a shame they don't make great movies like this for TV anymore, but it's great to see Christopher McDonald and Melora Walters still going strong.
