Saturday Man Movie

All right...I have the epic fun fight scene from Cannonball Run (1981) here, the one where the racers, stranded together by road construction, join forces to fight a biker gang.

Featuring, among others: Burt Reynolds, Dom DeLuise, Farrah Fawcett, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Roger Moore, Jack Elam, Adrienne Barbeau, a young Jackie Chan, Bert Convy, Terry Bradshaw, Mel Tillis, and Jamie Farr as racers and Peter Fonda and Robert Tessier as bikers.

How could any movie fail with a cast like that? (And this one didn't, but its sequel sure did.)

  1. But how many people actually remember who won the race?!? ;-)

  2. And Jack Elam.

    That's some wonderful mayhem.

    Daughter and I watched Wild Hogs last weekend - the angle of that building looks similar to the biker bar that was blown up.

    Where was Roger Moore's trusty PPK?

  3. @ The Donald. I mentioned him. He's one of my favorite old western character actors.

  4. Funny stuff.
    The best part is the outtakes during the end credits!

  5. Oops - I must've been scanning the text with Jack Elam's left eye when I read it the first time. ;-(
