Storyline

A moonshiner has been given protection by the local sheriff. When the sheriff is bought off by a crooked local businessman, the moonshiner gets busted. He tries to flee, but he is shot by a sheriff's deputy. The moonshiner's car careens off a road, and he ends up dead. The moonshiner's adult daughters try to make ends meet on the family farm, but the bank (incidentally, also controlled by the same local businessman) forecloses on the property. Left with few options, the photogenic daughters decide to exact revenge on anyone who has wronged them in the recent past. They also carry out an elaborate plot to rob the local bank.

Trivia

One of the motorcyclists in the race sequence is in fact an unbilled Steve McQueen. He took on this job of a motorcycle stuntman out of boredom after not being in a movie for several years. He was paid less than $200 for his work. See more »

A trial run for Thelma And Louise
17 September 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The only distinction Dixie Dynamite has is that Steve McQueen appears in a dirt bike racing sequence, but with the riders all wearing helmets I doubt you'll spot him. Spotting Steve is the only thing this film has for it.

A pair of curvaceous sisters Jane Anne Johnstone and Kathy McHaley are naturally upset when their father is raided by some fake revenuers aided in the raid by the sheriff Christopher George. Than later the father Mark Miller is killed when evil, but truly stupid deputy Wes Bishop gets trigger happy.

It's a depressed Dixie economy that's allowing bottom feeding entrepreneur Stanley Adams to start foreclosing and throwing people off their property in the best Snidely Whiplash tradition. At one point the girls decide they've had enough and with their friend dirt biker Warren Oates start doing a little payback.

What is being tried here is a trial run for Thelma&Louise. Of course to bring that off two far better actresses were hired. Johnstone and McHaley aren't in the league of Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis and there's a reason that this is their only screen credit.

As for the others I'm sure they were all embarrassed.
