Just a look at the credits should grant at least a vision to this TV movie. But there is little else to recommend it. I won't say that it sucks but it is not memorable. Willie Nelson just doesn't belong there, especially as the lead: probably that is the major fault. Stuart Whitman is still undistinctive as he was 3 decades before. Angie Dickinson, on the other hand, is still highly palatable, maybe even more than in Rio Bravo. Widmark does his homework, while Connors and Elam (and Worden)  are the best ones of the lot. 6\10

Now that you mentioned it, I remember I've heard about it a year or two ago, I think I even smelled some sort of DVD near me. Willie Nelson actually did a handful of those television (type) Westerns back in the 80s, I've been meaning to check them out.


P.S. Wasn't the year 1988?

No matter how cleverly you sneak up on a mirror, the reflection always looks you straight in the eye.

About the year, sources vary. And I bought the British dvd last Sunday. No subs, no extra.

I had a few chuckles at this one but I didn't like it overall. I agree about Willie Nelson. He didn't seem to fit in. I liked Richard Widmark in this. He'd got a bit mellow in his old age by the time he made this. I couldn't follow some of the story but I expect it was for laughs that I just didn't get.
