The comments at IMDb are enthusiastic and, I must confess, I share that sentiment. It is a movie which starts slowly, cheaply produced (it was made for TV) badly acted by Kristofferson and Cash but little by little the two gain confidence with their characters and Cash, I must admit, becomes in the last 30 minutes the best Frank I saw on screen, even better than Stacy Keach.
