Fleeing induction into the Union Army, an Ohio preacher's son (Barry Brown) beats it into the Civil War-era West, where he manages to fall in with a charming young con artist (Jeff Bridges) and his ragtag band of drifters and thieves. Their struggles to stay a step ahead of the law fuel this entertaining early gem from director Robert Benton. John Savage, Jerry Houser, David Huddleston, Geoffrey Lewis co-star. 92 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English.
