PG-13 | | Comedy, Crime, Drama
Based on the true story of Forrest Tucker and his audacious escape from San Quentin at the age of 70 to an unprecedented string of heists that confounded authorities and enchanted the public.
Although he receives fourth billing, Keith Carradine's role was almost completely dropped; he appears for literally three or four seconds with a single line of dialogue. (Director David Lowery has stated the cut footage will be included on the DVD.)
Do you have any children?
Forrest Tucker: I hope not.
Besides using the usual movie convention of not using local TV channel numbers for newscasts, the news stories displayed were typical of smaller town station packages and looked more like early seventies news. Dallas TV news departments KDFW, KXAS, KTVT and especially WFAA-TV were high quality operations and WFAA's 1981 operation included many specialized "beat" reporters focusing on detailed investigation of business, crime, medicine, politics and sports.
