Larry Karaszewski on

Road to Salina

Released 1971
Distributor AVCO Embassy Pictures

A grim psychological thriller starring Mimsy Farmer, Robert Walker and Rita Hayworth, 1970’s Road to Salina was directed by Georges Lautner, a man best known for his lighthearted comedies. Walker plays a drifter who may or may not be Farmer’s brother and the quasi-incestuous relationship that ensues adds an intriguing if queasy exploitation angle to the film’s art house atmosphere.
