STARS: Andy Griffith (Pray for the Wildcats), Sam Bottoms (Hunter's Blood), James Best (Killer Shrews), Noah Beery Jr. (Walking Tall)

SYNOPSIS: Apparently back in 1974 after a caring and gentle Andy Griffith got away from Mayberry and into the desert...something snapped! First he was wild and dangerous in Pray for the Wildcats then he made Savages an obscure made-for-TV thriller that's worth a look. Sam Bottoms plays a gas station attendant who gets an offer from rich weirdo Griffith to guide him on a desert hunting trip. After an accidental death Griffith decides it would be fun to hunt down the only unlucky witness to the crime... Sam Bottoms. Not only does Bottoms have to avoid Griffith's bullets, he has to struggle against the harsh desert environment with nothing but a pair shorts (no, hat, no shoes, no water, etc)! The film turns into a Most Dangerous Game / Naked Prey rip-off with a nice twist ending. Griffith gets a chance to bare his teeth again as he has a little too much fun hunting down his human prey. Based on the novel "Deathwatch" by Robb White.
