Storyline

During prohibition days, many hillbilly moonshine stills were hidden in hills of middle America. Jed Muldoon was about the best runner of moonshine whiskey around. Usually the local yokels were kinfolk of the runners and looked the other way while they were doing business. Naturally, the federal government was missing out on some tax money and were determined to shut them down. There's three things the government will never control, and one is making home brew.

Molsen Tennessee Beer?

I'm from Michigan and I can tell in a flash when one of my own are trying to talk like a southerner. So I wasn't too surprised to find that only one actor in this flick is really southern (Randy Quaid). It was filmed in Canada with mostly a Canadian cast. Anyone from the south watching this is going to choke.

Even so, I still love it for the flow of the story, the cars, the sound track. It's as cool as Bullitt. If you want to see it, you might find it hard to find because it was made for TV. I saw it on the Hallmark Movie Channel.

Also this was Andy Armstrong's one and only movie so it's like a one-of-a-kind. See it if you can.
