Storyline

Burt, a clever ex-con, has changed his identity and has managed to land a job as a deputy in small town in upstate New York. On the 4th of July, while the drunken Sheriff Paisley is busy with the local parade and festivities, Burt quietly steals a million dollars in cash from the cellar safe in the local rich old widow's house. Unsuspected, Burt makes plans to live the rest of his life in the lap of luxury in a far off place with his attractive girlfriend, local hash house waitress Jeanette. But when a crisis of conscience hits him like a wave of ice cold water, he starts to think twice about his dastardly deed, and how that purloining of the old lady's money is wrongly affecting his friends as well as innocent locals. But will Burt do the right thing? Written by Anonymous

My brief review of the film
10 January 2005 | by sol-See all my reviews

A film about the psychological impact of a robbery in a small town may sound interesting, but that is what this film is and it is not interesting at all. Terrible music the least of the problems of this film with low production values. Being top quality actors, it is very perplexing to think that this was all that Murphy and Welles managed to eventuate to after such great careers. Needless to say, their talents are not used here, but it is not really a film made by people with talent anyway. Although one can bear the watch, there is nothing rewarding at all along the way, unless male nudity turns you on. Even Kopache's earnest acting is no virtue to poor writing and directing.
