A great Trucking Movie with a beautiful yellow Pete 359
4 June 2004 | by (Swansea UK) – See all my reviews

Distinct lack of plot to this movie.

Its the story of a truck driver who is the worst imaginable and his sane passenger and a truck. There is not much else in there. Did I mention the truck? A lovely Peterbilt and reefer trailer combination with lots of that grunty Cummins Diesel sound.

The real star of this movie is Alan Arkin. He gives a hilarious performance in one of my favourite B movies ever.

I have never seen the end of this movie. I taped it off TV several years ago and about 4/5 in to the movie there was a power cut so I never got the end of the movie. Can't buy it anywhere and never know when its going to be shown on TV again.

Cameo appearances by Ida Lupino and George Raft who had appeared in a trucking movie called They Drive by Night also starring a young H Bogart.
