Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Three on a Match refers to a trio of Louisiana prison farm inmates. Patrick Cassidy plays a naive computer whiz, David Hemmings is an erudite con artist, and Bruce A. Young is a macho muscle-flexer. The threesome bides its time until a chance for escape. Pursued by the sadistic "Boss" (Everett McGill), our heroes take to the treacherous river rapids--and beyond. It's Cool Hand Luke meets Deliverance in this TV movie written and directed by the creator of Magnum PI, Don Belisarrio.
