***Not Bad For Max Baer Jr. Directorial Debut***

First off all the other ratings were done nearly 30 years after the movie was made. Of coarse it is not going to hold up to standards in the era of 2002 - 2012. This was Max Baer Jr. first attempt at directing with help from actors he knew and done for a very low budget. It is not a block buster movie, but it is entertaining and has an awesome cast. I think you have to give a little credit to Mr. Baer for even attempting this. I do not see any of the critics attempting a movie. As the matter of fact the only attempt i see from them is sitting on their duffs watching a movie and pretending to be a professional at judging ambitions. I liked this movie and thought it was alright in a 1975 sort of way. I will admit that I am a bit partial to The Wild McCullochs. After all I did have a cameo with Don Grady in the Jeep!
