Eddie Macon's Run is a 1983 film based on the 1980 novel by James McLendon, it stars Kirk Douglas, John Schneider and John Goodman in his film debut.[1]


Eddie Macon (Schneider) was wrongly convicted of a crime. While performing at a prison rodeo in Huntsville, Texas, he escapes and heads for the border, hoping to join his family in Mexico. Marzack (Douglas) is a cop in hot pursuit of Eddie, determined to put him back in jail. Eddie has no transportation, so he takes the journey on foot. He ends up in the woods, where he is nearly killed. He meets Jilly Buck, a bored rich girl who agrees to help him because it's "just a slow Wednesday."
