Backwoods babes become successful businesswomen
5 November 2017 | by moonspinner55See all my reviews

The three comely daughters of a backwoods moonshiner are left orphaned after their pappy and his crew are murdered by the goons of their fat cat competitor, who also blow the production still to smithereens in the hopes of running off the girls and taking over the property himself. Unfortunately for him, the ladies discover an underground stash of prime Prohibition-era bootleg whiskey--and they know just the right guy to act as their muscleman, the top-finishing stock car driver at the local speedway who runs "shine" between races. Cheap, barely-competent drive-in entry from Roger Corman and New World Pictures, amateurishly directed by Gus Trikonis. John Saxon (in flannel shirts and jeans) seems curiously misplaced as a good ol' boy, though William Conrad (with muttonchops) is a dandy villain and the ladies, Susan Howard, Claudia Jennings and Maureen McCormick, are spunky and attractive. The picture looks muddy and sounds terrible--and, with a PG rating, seems a little tame for the hillbilly genre--but B-movie completists will probably be satisfied by the energy and fast pace. *1/2 from ****
