TRAILER - Thunder and Lightning (1977)

It's 250 proof fun! - as they bust up the biggest moonshine racket in the country.

Never has a trailer tried so hard to make you want to see the film it is marketing. The narration over the action seems to almost plead with you to go and see the film. Take away the narration and they would have had me sold by just the the action alone. A fun tongue-in-cheek moonshine actioner full of chases that border on slapstick, Thunder and Lightning was another of the many "car chase" flicks so popular during the 1970s. David Carradine and Kate Jackson are fun in the leads and have a nice chemistry together. Don't miss the scene where a minister preaches a sermon and wrestles an alligator at the same time!
