Vic Tayback and Johnny Cash are two small time crooks who plan to steal $70,000 from a small bank. Cash holds the wife of the bank manager hostage while Tayback goes to the bank for the money.
Cash enjoys abusing and slapping around the woman. He does very well with role of the remorseless psycho killer. Donald Woods is the bank manager, Cay Forester is his wife and Ron Howard is their young son whom Cash has a phobia about killing, which brings about his demise.
This movie holds up very well today and is really worth a look. Cash also sings the title song.
