Here is a RARE CLASSIC HOLLYWOOD drama starring the late great George C. Scott on RARE DVD, Digital Transfer, and WIDESCREEN VERSION. This is one of George's great performances. THE PLOT: A young man meets the Legendary "Flim Flam Man" and begins a Huck Finn-like trip with him learning how to run the small con as he developes a relationship with the older man. As the police close in, he has to decide where he will take the rest of his life. This is one of Hollywood's great dramas that is a must have in ones' movie collection. The DVD is NTSC Region 0(playable worldwide).
A must have movie for your movie collection. The family gives it A two thumbs up and that says alot.
I remembered seeing this years ago on TV and liking it a lot. The version I got from Classic Movies had a clear, sharp picture, great sound and a nice box, with original poster art (Frank Frazetta's work!), to store it in. I'm very pleased with this.
I live near Anderson County Ky, and Lawrenceburg, where this movie was shot. It was on TCM for the first time recently, and I tried to record it, unsuccessfully. I did not see it in the theaters in '67, but have seen it on TV in the past. I liked it. There is a youTube video from 2014 comparing the present day locations to the film. The L&N railroad is gone, but many of the locations are still there, with changes.
