Dirty Mary Crazy Larry

A nasty piece of work. Susan George and Peter Fonda star as the title lowlife dimbulbs, whose kidnap-for-ransom scheme leads to reel after reel of vintage Detroit muscle speeding down rural backroads, totaling cop cars, and ducking helicopters. For some reason, every major character in this drive-in exemplar seems pissed, which adds real vinegar to the tart script. -Lee Gardner
