Rob’s review published on Letterboxd:
It's been awhile since I've been able to have a blind watch on an old movie. Most of the ones I put on I have a reason for wanting to watch. I knew nothing about this movie except that Andy Griffith was in it. I was not all disappointed and I may have found a new favorite movie. I was surprised I hadn't heard more about this movie before, and I was only a little surprised that there was a Criterion release. Andy Griffith is fantastic in this movie, I've only seen him from the Andy Griffith Show before this, and he absolutely becomes Lonesome Rhodes. I only saw the character on the screen. There is so much I want to explore with his character on a second watch. Frankly I don't want to say much more because I don't want to spoil the experience.
Watch this film!!
