A veteran comes home from the Korean War to the mountains and takes over the family moonshining business.
Offbeat crime thriller, slow-paced, well-played, and with a touch of Noir.
Halliwell*: "Downbeat but actionful crime melodrama with an unusual background and plenty of car chases."
Maltin***:"...cult favorite that even today continues to play in drive-ins; for many this remains the definitive moonshine picture. Jim Mitchum makes screen debut playing Bob's brother; the elder Mitchum got a hit record out of the title tune, which he also wrote!"
