Tanya Tucker and Dirk Benedict in moonshine running movie
12 May 2005 | by (South Dakota) – See all my reviews

This is not a really great movie, but it's an appearance of Tanya Tucker the country singer and Dirk Benedict before he became famous as Faceman on The A-Team. Dirk plays Dusty Tyree, a moonshine running fool if there ever was one. He's also somewhat of a beekeeper. He has a '79-'81 Firebird set up to haul moonshine in a tank. He runs stop signs and does 180s and drives fast backwards and when he's about to get caught, he dumps the moonshine out and ignites it, like in The Last American Hero. But he gets caught somehow sometime, and the Feds have him and the two young women in this story at their mercy. The three have to go undercover for the ATF to break up illegal cigarette smuggling. Some good Tanya Tucker music in this movie.
