He did a nice turn in “Murphy’s Romance” with James Garner and Sally Field, filmed just south of Phoenix.
The funny thing about that movie is that it romantically depicted small town Arizona life. They left out the state prison just out of camera shot and the related side effects of have a state prison in your small town.
Should have been “Murphy’s Prison Romance” with James Garner as the lifer crime boss and Corey Haim as the fresh “fish” in prison. Disgusting, yes, but more realistic than Murphy’s Romance.

I was in a prison town in NY State recently. The “resident visiting spouse and family” culture was evident. Imagine what an impact the families of convicts would have on the local school system. The convicts probably out numbered the rural locals ten to one.
