California Kid - 10:ans filmklubb
Martin Sheen is at his most James Dean-ish and Vic Morrow at his most sadistic in the made-for-TV The California Kid. Sheen plays a hot rodder whose brother dies at the hands of sheriff Morrow. It is Morrows habit to punish speeders by deliberately running them off precipitous mountain curves. Sheen goads Morrow into a no-survivors chase up a steep mountain road -- where more than a few surprises await the homicidal lawkeeper. Martin Sheens souped-up, garishly decorated jalopy gives the best and most consistent performance in The California Kid.
