MOVIE ADS: DOOR TO DOOR MANIAC!
I've loved this movie since I was a kid.
Johnny Cash playing a homicidal hood, how cool is that?
Watching him fire a gun during the beginning of the movie is fucking awesome!
A very young Ron Howard plays an important part of this story. Think he's done well for himself? He's one of the few big names in HollyWEIRD that I genuinely like and respect.
Vic Tayback appears as a criminal. It didn't matter how big his part was, he always made an impression when he appeared on screen. I still have fond memories of watching him in countless movies and tv shows.
In the United States, this movie is considered "public domain", so it's relatively easy to find on region one DVD.
One of the better "public domain" versions, can be found in SENSATIONAL SIXTIES 50 MOVIE PACK ( MILL CREEK - region one ).
This version CONTAINS Mr. Cash's music. Many other versions have had the music REMOVED.
Also, most public domain versions I've seen, have HORRIBLE picture quality. This print is actually DECENT!
DOOR TO DOOR MANIAC! is also known as FIVE MINUTES TO LIVE.
