A Lost Gem
- Randy Moredock
This movie appears to have been lost in the sands of time but deserves to be resurrected. It is a film that features two actors early on their careers who would go on to future stardom, Brian Keith and Efram Zimbelest. These two actors represent the brains and brawn so to speak who are in charge of transporting dangerous and volitile chemicals over back roads. The adventures that ensue are exciting and spiced by the personalities of the other members of the transport crew. Much to my delight, I was able to purchase a copy of the film on Amazon.com, and I recommend that others secure a copy for their own film libraries. You will want to watch it again and again. Enjoy.
An Exciting and Underrated Movie
- Randy Moredock
I cannot remember when I first saw this film, but the details are fresh in mind as if it were yesterday. Brian Keith plays a tough wild cat truck owner who is asked to move sensitive and corrosive material from a closing plant to a new chemical plant. The crux of the film is that he must take the material through rough back roads because the chemicals are too dangerous to be moved on normal roads. In order to accomplish his task, Keith gathers together group of men, who, for various personal reasons, are ready to take on this dangerous task. The cast features men who are not "A" list actors with the exception of Efram Zimblast, Jr. The dynamics among this diverse group of men and their motivations are revealed in juxtoposition to an array of crises faced by drivers and they undertake their cross county odyssey. This is an exciting and dramatically intense film at many different levels. The movie is rarely shown on TCM, but I hope it finds itself a place periodically in its schedule. It is a film worth watching. Don't miss it!
