Set in Key West, Florida, Peter Fonda
(Killer Force, Ulee’s Gold) plays Tom Skelton, a bum who gets a job as a fishing guide in his old hometown. Nobody wants to have anything to do with Skelton, least of all rival guides Nichol Dance and Carter (Warren Oates, Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia and Harry Dean Stanton, Alien). Faced with financial disaster and widespread hostility, he turns to his wealthy grandfather Goldsboro (Burgess Meredith, Rocky) for help. Taking time off from his lovemaking sessions with sexy secretary Bella (Sylvia Miles, Midnight Cowboy), his grandfather pumps some money into Tom’s operation, and our hero makes his peace with Carter. A climactic fight with Nichol puts an end to that problem, while Tom’s romantic relationship with Miranda (Margot Kidder, Superman) helps him sort out his priorities. Director/writer Thomas McGuane (Tom Horn) adapted the script from his own novel. The stellar cast also includes Elizabeth Ashley (Coma), William Hickey (Prizzi’s Honor) and Joe Spinell (Maniac).
