A RARE & GREAT 1970's COMEDY ACTION MOVIE;
During the Prohibition era, Walker (Burt Reynolds) & Claire ((Liza Minnelli) , a Cabaret Entertainer who has an "IN" with several big-time nightclub owners, run a smuggling operation in Mexico. The duo team up with Kibby (Gene Hackman), when Walker nearly gets him killed during a bungled "wetback" running scheme .
Trying to escape the law & the big-time rum runners, they set sail on their first " Liquor Runs" from Canada on Walker's Boat (Which by the way the bank is looking for) it's name "The Lucky Lady". Problems, & how, ensue when both men fall in love with Claire, and she can't make up her mind between them.
This was an attempt at re-creating the screwball comedies of the 1930s, but it has a shocking moment when the teenage boy of the gang, (Robby Benson) (Walker was a close friend of his father & took him under his wing when the father was killed by the Coast Guard during a liquor run) meets a very graphic fate by machinegun.
Costing over 12 Million dollars in 1975 (That was an unreal amount back then), & having a cast of nearly all well known stars, This film is not remembered by most & really should be;
It is a GOOD picture !!!
Filmed in Mexico and directed by Stanley Donen.
Good sound & picture quality throughout. It should be noted the film is infamous for it's badly over-lit & odd angle cinematography in the outdoor boating sequences, the recording wasn't screwed up, the original film was released that way.
