On August 1st, 2018 it was announced that the rights to The Legend of Boggy Creek (1972) and this film, the first two from director Charles B. Pierce, were assigned back to his daughter, Pamula Pierce, by the son of the films' investor, Steve Ledwell of the Ledwell & Son Enterprises Inc. However, only The Legend of Boggy Creek (1972) was said to be getting a 4K restoration by the George Eastman Museum in New York for a future theatrical and home video high-definition release. Nothing was said about Bootleggers (1974) as of the announcement. See more »
Can't really remember much about this movie, except that it was shown in the very early days of HBO, over and over. I remember HBO being a huge novelty (movies on TV! without commercials!) but the novelty soon faded as they had a pretty limited set of titles to show. Bootleggers seems to have been one of them; I feel like they showed it several times a week at least. Anyway, I watched it, and enjoyed it, back then when I was 13 or 14. Would love to see it again and find how it compares to my memory.
