The Fast & The Furious (1954) (DVD)
Just got Roger Corman's The Fast & The Furious DVD in the PO Box today. Watched it immediately. Interesting premise- a truck driver is accused of killing another truck driver. On the run, the accused driver kidnaps a gal and her topless Jaguar, enters a road race to Mexico and...well I don't want to spoil the ending. Typical 1950's B-Movie cinematography and action scenes. In other words- I dug it! Except for the music. It was really dissonant and noisy and didn't fit the film at all. Besides starring in the film John Ireland was also one of the directors.
I also started writing verses for Shut Down, a tune that will be featured in Rat Rod Rockers!
