Real Sleeper highlighted by performance of Shermanck brothers!
An excellent revival of the "Swamp" genre film popular during the Dukes of Hazard, Smokey & the Bandit days. While the cinematography is at the typical quality level of a low budget film it adds to the film's mystique. To this authors eyes,remastering this print would have the same disastrous results as "colourizing" Gone with the Wind. Without giving away the intricate plot, the film is highlighted by the performance of the Shermanck brothers who find themselves in a dire predicament in the swamps of East Texas. The spontanaity of the Shermanck bros performance reminded the author of Tatum Oneal in her Paper Moon debut. Unfortunately this author is not aware of other performances from this talented pair. I suspect the limited distribution prevented any notice. A big loss for Hollywood! In summary, a real gem for those fortunate enough to obtain a rare copy.
