A sirupy sweet take on the story of Harry Tracy, nice scenery (shot in British Columbia and Alberta) but story lacks grit. Seems more of a love story with Bruce Dern in his aw-shucks mode. Also stars Helen Shaver, Michael C. Gwynne, and Gordon Lightfoot. If it had a music video included it would fit right in the Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid, The Life And Times of Judge Roy Bean, The Ballad Of Cable Hogue, and The Dutchess And The Dirtwater Fox. 6/10

Nice script, as I recall... great role for Bruce Dern... interesting to see Gordon Lightfoot as his adversary...loved the climax in the cornfield...  once you get past some of that awful slapstick humor at the onset the movie really takes off.
