The Traveling Executioner (1970) Poster

Stacy Keach is electrifying as Jonas Candide, an ex-carny who in 1918 travels around the bayou with a portable electric chair. At $100 a head, he renders his services with loving care. But then he falls for a female "client".

| It was released on video in UK...
This film was released in the UK on video as I have a copy I bought from a video seller many years ago. It is a rare film though as I'd never seen a copy for sale before and only isolated copies on amazon since, selling for something ridiculous like £85! It's an interesting film, with good music, but like a lot of the science fiction films from around this era, overall it just doesn't quite work. Would never get made now though - and certainly not like this, so perhaps I should be glad it got made at all. Keach very good in the central role. After all your good reviews, I'll give it another look. If anyone would like a copy of the film email me and maybe I could sort one out for you.
