: Clint Eastwood, Kevin Costner and Laura Dern It is the year 1963 and Butch Haynes has just escaped from Huntsville Prison, Texas, where he was serving a 40-year sentence for armed robbery. On the run, Haynes has taken a seven-year-old boy, Phillip Perry, hostage. Haynes is being chased by Red Garnett, a member of the Texas Mounted Police, and a group of assistants, including criminologist Sally Gerber. Garnett is an experienced officer and his instincts have worked well over the years. He understands the world of marginalization and the people who belong to it and, more importantly, he understands Butch Haynes. The confirmation of Clint Eastwood as a qualified filmmaker for any type of film company, after years dedicated to the ‘western’ and the ‘thriller’, took place with this film that collects elements of both genres and that Eastwood himself produced, directed and starred in. A ‘road movie’ that dodges the clichés. TCM (VM SUB) S14 19:35
