Surprisingly good for a made for TV movie. Griffith and Cash both turn in good performances, but Griffith steals the show. Griffith is so good at being subtle, that you automatically accept him in whichever character he projects. There is no sense of embellishment in his performances. He delivers with an honest subtlety that we ususually pick up from people to judge their true character. This mastery of skill is evident here. I had never before seen Mr. Griffith in a villainous role, and I was barely a minute in, before I disliked his character. Regarding, production quality- it is a 1980s made for TV movie. Take it for what it is. Also featured, June Carter Cash, as an "Amazing Oracle".
