Eddie Macon's Run Details


The film may be called Eddie Macon's Run, but the title character ([[Performer~P63757~John Schneider~johnschneider]]) takes a back seat during most of the proceedings. Most of the footage is devoted to Eddie's chief nemesis, small-town lawman Marzack ([[Performer~P88133~Kirk Douglas~kirkdouglas]]). Arrested on a trumped-up charge, Eddie breaks out of prison and takes to the road, with Marzack in hot pursuit. The lion's share of the film is a tire-screeching chase through Mexico. [[Performer~P27679~John Goodman~johngoodman]] makes his film debut in this lively (if pointless) adaptation of James McLendon's novel. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
