Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Long Way Home is comprised of the first two episodes of the 1975 TV series The Family Holvak. Glenn Ford plays the Reverend Tom Holvak, who lives with his family in a depression-era southern town. Holvak opens his doors to a charming vagabond, played by David Carradine. Only the Holvak son Ramey (Lance Kerwin) figures out that Carradine is an escaped convict. To make matters worse, Carradine plans another crime--and doesn't cotton to witnesses. Julie Harris costars as Holvak's wife Elizabeth, with Elizabeth Cheshire appearing as daughter Julie Mae. Long Way Home was originally telecast September 7 and 14, 1975.
