Movie Reviews

Run, Simon, Run
C. Johnson | Chiacgo, Illinois United States | 03/10/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I would normally rate this movie a 4 or 5, but the 3 rating reflects the disappointing quality of the DVD release. There have been other "Made For TV" movies such as "Duel" released on DVD with great quality. This release looks like it was transferred to DVD from an old film taped off a TV set. I purchased a VHS copy of this film some years ago and the quality was also very poor. So I was ecstatic to see it come to DVD with the promise of digital restoration. However, the end result is same poor quality only on DVD. Anyway, if your a fan of Burt Reynolds or Inger Stevens, I recommend adding this to your collection. Hopefully, this can be re-released in the future with better quality standards."
A Post-Quinton Quintessential Burt Reynolds

"Shortly after his half-breed character's run on Gunsmoke, Burt Reynolds was the right actor at the right time. America was obsessed with a romantic reassessment of Native Americans and Hollywood (and the Hippie Culture) was fully embracing the White man's burden of guilt. Reynolds claimed Irish-Italian-Seminole roots and his features were an asset over most obviously white actors for portraying a believable Indian.

Run, Simon, Run is one of several high-caliber "Movies of the Week" put out in the late Sixties and early Seventies for television. This one was a particular favorite of mine and it was great to finally get to see it again. It's a good showcase for Burt Reynolds acting before he became a more comedic actor. It is also a sad display of Inger Stevens since it is her last performance before committing suicide. The style and music is definitely a product of its time (The Orphanage sings what I suppose is the theme for Simon) yet for those of us coming of age in that time, it holds up well and stirs fond memories."

"It's nice have this great little known made for TV movie on DVD!!! Okay,the picture and sound quality is not the greatest in the world,but this film is quite a rare find,so thats fine!!! It's a early Burt Reynolds performance and there's fine acting from James Best,Don Dubbins and Inger Stevens also!!! A obscure 70's gem!!! Two thumbs up!!! Five stars!!! A+"
