A trucker movie before truckin' was cool
12 May 2005 | by (South Dakota) – See all my reviews

This TV movie was Black Dog, Thunder Run and The Road Warrior all rolled into one, though it was made before the others. David Janssen from the TV series The Fugitive is a truck driver who has lost his truck driving license. It will be temporarily reinstated if he drives a load from Los Angeles to Houston, and, upon completion of the run, it will be permanently reinstated. Gee, can the law really be manipulated like that? Didn't that happen in Black Dog? Keenan Wynn plays his co-driver. They drive one of the White Freightliner cabovers popular at that time. Along the way, people try to highjack the load. Gee, didn't that happen in Thunder Run? They stop for a while in the desert. Will they make it to Houston? And what were they hauling, anyway?
