30 hand picked films. A new one every day
A veteran comes home from the Korean War to the mountains and takes over the family moon shining business.
Sincere but unfocused. Fun for Mitchum completists and drive-in/hillbilly pop culture enthusiasts. I mean, imagine with Nicholas Ray could have done with this material.
Poor vanity project for Robert Mitchum set in the world of bootleggers fails to provide interesting characters or much action. Original story idea was by Mitchum himself.
★★★ the candle will always be 'burning in the window' for this hard-boiled, fast, furious and deadpan 'whisky-man'.
Mitchum is great, the film is just okay.
Mitchum produced this himself I believe. A fine film about moonshining. The recent restoration looked incredible
