Movie Clip of the Week! 1973

Every Thursday I post a clip from a movie that you may not heard of but should see. This week it’s from the year 1973.

Steelyard Blues – 1973

Directed by: Alan Myerson

Starring: Donald Sutherland, Jane Fonda, Peter Boyle, Howard Hesseman, John Savage

Plot: It concerns the lives of a group of misfits trying to find a happier life against the norms of society. Sutherland plays an ex-con with a passion for demolition derbies. He has wrecked almost every possible car, but violates his parole when confronted by a 1950 Studebaker. This embarrasses his brother, a politically ambitious district attorney (Howard Hesseman, in an unlikely respectable role). Fonda plays a prostitute with an off-on relationship with Sutherland’s character. The gang tries to get an old Consolidated PBY Catalina plane flying, and much humor ensues.
