Goin' South is a 1978 comedic western about a condemned outlaw who is saved from the gallows when a virginal woman decides to marry and reform him. After years of stealing money, cows and horses, Henry Lloyd Moon (Jack Nicholson) has finally been caught by the local police force. Deputy Towfield (Christopher Lloyd) is thrilled at the prospect of finally being able to execute him, but his plans are ruined when Julie Tate (Mary Steenburgen) agrees to marry Moon and be responsible for turning him into a decent citizen. Towfield is infuriated by the turn of the events, mostly because he had intended to marry Julie himself. Julie quickly sets Moon to work, helping her try to find gold on the land that she owns. Though initially at odds, the two develop warm feelings for each other and fall into an unexpected romance. Their lives are turned upside down, however, when Moon's old gang shows up and prepares to take both Julie and her land for themselves.moreless
