Movie Reviews

A True Classic!
Ralph DeMattia | Fayetteville, Pennsylvania United States | 08/06/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Very well acted and factual, I waited many years to finally SEE this one again, much less get it on DVD and it was well worth the wait! Dennis Weaver as Dr. Mudd and Susan Sullivan as his wife are virtually flawless in their respective roles. I've only had it for 2 months and have watched it twice; once myself and again when friends came over a week later and wanted to see it and THEY loved it so much that they ordered a copy. It's well worth getting!!
I also reccommend PRISONER OF SHARK ISLAND,it's an older MUDD type video,now available on another website, but a great flick."
Misguided ideals and purity of thought.

"A wonderful performance by All the Players taking part in this chunk of history, as astonishing as; "The Prisoner of Shark Island." To quote from James Swanson's informative and meticulously researched book 'Manhunt' - Asia Booth's (John Wilkes Booth's sister) loving memory to her brother closes with a graveside elegy: "But, granting that he died in vain, yet gave his all on earth, youth, beauty, manhood, a great human love, the certainty of excellence in his profession,a powerful brain, the strength of an athlete, health and great wealth, for 'his cause.' This man was noble in life, he periled his immortal soul, and he was brave in death. Already his hidden remains are given Christian burial, and strangers have piled his grave with flowers." "'So runs the world away.'""
