Thunder Road DVD (1958)
Transporting illegal alcohol over dark two-lane mountain highways, Lucas Doolin (Robert Mitchum) races wildly through the night, crashing road blocks and outrunning ambushes, defying anyone who tries to stop him. "A man has the right to do anything," he says, "including making whiskey, as long as he makes it on his own land." But when ruthless racketeers muscle in on Doolin'sterritory - and kill one of his men in the process - the Kentucky bootlegger declares war, fiercely determined to maintain his hard-won business and independence... even if it costs him his life.
Boasting breathtaking auto chase scenes and a superb performance from Robert Mitchum, Thunder Road is breathtaking excitement - the most exhilarating road thriller of them all.
