Trivia

Vic Edwards wife, Claudia Schulman is played by Kathleen Nolan. She also appears as a co-star with Vic in a scene shown near the end of the film festival. The film festival scene was taken from a real episode of Gunsmoke, Gunsmoke: Comanches Is Soft (1964) featuring both Kathleen Nolan and Burt Reynolds. See more »

Goofs

It is stated at least twice that Vic Edwards was playing on the Tennessee football team during the 1951 season (supposedly a sophomore in college). However, the Wikipedia page Lil pulls up shows that Vic was born in 1936, making him 15 while supposedly playing college football. He would have been a high school sophomore during the 1951 season (in fact, Burt Reynolds was a high school sophomore during the 1951 football season as he graduated high school in 1954). See more »

Quotes

Vic Edwards: You wanna know I needed to come to knoxville, I needed to say goodbye, Goodbye to the town that made me who Iam, Goodbye to the trees I climbed as a kid, Goodbye to the school that tought me how to break the rules, and the streets I wondered late at night, the hidden places that I left all my secrets, The town where I made so many many mistakes, and now its time for one last goodbye.

Touching movie
30 March 2018 | by jmoore-37639See all my reviews

I can't believe how much I was affected by this movie. I rarely if ever cry watching a movie, and this one brought tears to my eyes. Watching Burt Reynolds examine his life made me think of my own. The mistakes I've made. The joys I've experienced. And how much I regretably just let pass me by. This is possibly one of the best movies I've seen in a long time.
