Exceptional Movie !
1 November 2001 | by ABombSee all my reviews

I don't just love this movie, it was filmed right here in my home town of Greenville. No mention of that fact in the credits though because I recorded it off the TV and looked for them.

I saw many of the scenes they filmed at the old jail house, the courthouse, the Warm Springs Airport, and many others. Unfortunately I didn't get to be in the movie. I rank this movie a 10 ++ because it had ever known star you can think of. Mr. Adkins was seen in the courthouse square right across from the courthouse. Beautiful town but nothing of the inside of the courthouse was real. I would recommend you seeing it if it ever comes out on video. Rod Taylor and John Glover were outstanding in it !
