Saturday Night at the Movies 8/22/15!

Who cares what picture we see?

Roddy McDowall would - whether he's credited in the movie or not - so we will make this one the choice for this evening...

Here's a car chase flick made four years before Smokey and the Bandit made everyone rush to make one. This one has a fine cast playing not particularly likable characters - but that takes a backseat (pun intended) to the wild stunts and car action on display.

Some notes on that trailer - the song being warbled is not in the movie anywhere. They sure do edit the trailer to make it look like Fonda and George are alone in the car - but Adam Roarke is along for the ride as Fonda's partner in crime. And perhaps most interestingly - Roddy McDowall plays a small but significant role - but he is completely uncredited anywhere in the movie. However, they did stick a credit for him in the trailer!

I have this in a double feature DVD set with another good Peter Fonda vehicle flick - Race with the Devil - and we could be checking out that one too while we're seeing how dirty Mary is and how crazy Larry is...even tonight, if you want to come check it out with me.

Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!
