Every Character Top Notch
This movie grips ya from the start and takes ya on a ride of reckless abandon, as Tierney movies do! Man, he's got the biggest chip on his shoulder about the "Haves" causing his and the other "Have Nots" troubles you've ever seen...Loved this movie from the plot to the characters to the end - and that private "Dick" lol, perfect quotations about life's forked road and the pitfalls one will surely meet, no matter how good everything's going! Tough guys, Tough gals, Tough breaks, Great Movie!
