Thunderbolt & Lightfoot – 1st Car Chase & Crazy Redneck ‘n Rabbit Car Ride

default Thunderbolt & Lightfoot   1st Car Chase & Crazy Redneck n Rabbit Car Ride

Check out my car styling blog: stylingcarsblog.blogspot.com Red and Goody lie in wait for T & L outside a diner, fire off some welcoming rounds and give chase. Lightfoot looses Goody’s tough old Merc in the hills, but trashes the Riv’s tranny. Later, on foot, they manage to hitch a ride from a insane redneck who likes huffing Mopar exhaust fumes. They survive the wild ride and a rollover to find the rednecks glass jaw and his boot full of hares. Lightfoot finds a going away gift from a raccoon.

    Great american film making.Clint and jeff the good old days.Love that 1973 fury!

  4. MrGoblin60

    Hey, haven’t seen this since about 1974. That scene with the maniac in the Plymoth is brilliant; he makes about as much sense as Robert Mugabe and Col Gadaffi combined!

    This is my favorite Eastwood film, however, when the Buick goes off the road over the hill, the Eastwood dummy is clear even at full speed. It ALWAYS makes me chuckle a bit. Still doesn’t take away from the beauty of this film or the stellar cinematography… just look at the framing when Bridges sits indian style with the Montana big sky in the background, Clint looks 12 ft tall! awesome!

    Bill was also Redlegs in ‘The Outlaw Josey Wales’, the Constable in ‘The Gauntlet and a few other Clint Eastwood movies. Guess having stock company players is one thing Clint had in common with Jack Webb.

    One of my favorite buddy movies of the 70′s along with Scarecrow and Midnight Cowboy!

    one of the great classic movies of the seventies. the “method” actor driving that Fury is none other than Bill McKinney, the same fella who porked Ned Beatty (another great actor) in the movie Deliverance

    The crazy driver cracks me up so much. I cannot even think about this scene without laughing.

  17. Kylev2

    I always liked Kennedy……..great actor. What year was this movie?

  20. videozman1

    Fitst saw on cable and scared shit out of me as a kid but grew to like it.

  21. SidJustice1

    Yeah, I wasn’t a big fan of the ’05 remake, either. But yeah, Bridges, Lange and Charles Grodin were great. IDK why ppl didn’t like it. I was very young, but I remember my parents taking us kids to go see that in ’76.

  22. videozman1

    Jessica Lange’s big break. A lot of peole have said that movie was not very good. I have always liked it and better than 05 remake by Peter Jackson IMO.

  23. SidJustice1

    Yeah, nothing like 3 tons of steel haulin’ ass and rollin’ over with rabbits. *lol*

    I’ve always liked Kennedy, too. He has played some great tough bad-ass characters over the years.

    Funny you had mentioned Bridges in ‘KIng Kong’ (1976) he was underrated as hell in that.

  24. videozman1

    Love the old school movie car chases. Classic movie. Jeff and Clint = the best.

  30. AirsoftxX808Xx

    The reason why Cletus can throw you so far is because is power comes from beer. Just like the power of the sniper family comes from their sniper rifles.
