Not too bad for a TV trucker movie
13 May 2005 | by (South Dakota) – See all my reviews

James Brolin plays Clay. He drives a nice White Western Star conventional he calls the Outlaw. I guess that's Clay's CB handle too. He's always knocking the tires or polishing the truck. Rip Torn plays K.W., his co-driver. Clay and K.W. go across the country for the money, even crossing a picket line. K.W. tells Clay, "Let 'em hear Mary!" That must be a polite way of saying "Give 'em hell!" Somehow Clay needed more money, and he got into hauling rustled cattle or stealing trailers. His wife leaves him and says he's a boy. Clay says "I'm a man!" Well, Clay is in a mess. Could it be that this movie has an unhappy ending? Notice that when something breaks down, a bunch of other things break down at the same time.
