Home The Show The Brains Rantings Stuff Hook Ups Brain Board

Well, the BOF Video Luau, as we have dubbed it officially featured a little more Southern Style Drive-In smega and dammit I am stating right here and now...Lee Frost and Wes Bishop were just about the best damn two some in filmmaking during the late 60's early 70's. You talk about underated...The Black Gestapo, Nazi Camp 7, The Thing With Two Heads, this little jewel and a slew of others have got me ready to do a whole show about these 2, who not only write together, but one produces, one directs and both act in these sick slices of filmdom. You can bet you'll be entertained by God, they is alright by me and so is Dixie Dynamite.

We got native Kentuckian Warren Oates, better know to you stiffs as the Drill Sgt. in Stripes but he was a contemporary of Jack Nicholson, Marty Sheen and Steve McQueen, among others and by the way, Steve is in this movie, uncredited and totally unseen as a motorcycle racer during a motocross scene with Warren. But I digress, Warren Oates was a marvelous acting dude (catch the documentary on his life by fellow Kentuckian Tom Thurman) who unfortunately had a battle with the bottle and in this thing Ol' Dubya is drunk in most scenes and not even in some others because he probably was too drunk. But the beauty of it all is the writers just wrote around it so do not worry, it is the South, folks drink hard, they live hard and sure enough it works. Character actor extraordinaire Christopher George is also in this puppy and gives us the other recognizable face.

The plot goes something like this:

Daddy runs moonshine, bungling deputy (played fantastically by Wes Bishop--producer/co-writer) fires a gun during a car chase, Daddy wrecks, dies...Dixie and her sis Patsy gots to pay off the farm and of course, reek vengeful, vengeance and get revenge.

Along the way we see:
Warren, ride a motorcycle, Warren drink a beer,
Warren teaches both gals to ride a motorcycle, drink some more beer,
Warren races his motorcycle and wins, celebrates with a few beers,
leaves town and comes back to have a beer.

Now I know you are saying "uh, is this good?" Yes, this thing has some good stuff, a bumbling sheriff, who seems to be the inspiration for the sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane character on the Dukes of Hazard, as well as the town's bad guy who, likewise bares an incredible resemblance to Boss Hogg. All in all it is entertaining but lacks any nudity or much grit...there is some implied rape, an exploding shitter and a morgue-robbing but this thing, as you can see by the one sheet, was Rated PG, PG dammit, from a couple of guys who were wallowing in drive-in gravel, it is hard to believe that they cut back on a bunch of Dixie TaTas, but they did for some reason. But, you will still like this. I promise. It has Steve McQueen, he was a fucking genius this Steve McQueen, Bullitt, Ali McGraw...Steve McQueen completists, oh man, start the jerk-a-thon. Oh yeah, Dixie, she is cute, too, Jane Ann Johnstone has great gams...get this and you can even watch it with the kids, just tell them "Warren likes his soda-pop" or "that's just Warren's medicine," or "Warren has a problem, kids, but he is a genius."

Lee Frost, Wes Bishop...I love these guys! Don't worry we will tell you more about them in the future.

FACT: Warren Oates was not sober during the painting of this one sheet, or during any of the filming of this motion picture.

Warren...principle photography begins this morning.

DIXIE SHOTGUN...no that won't work.

DIXIE MOTORBIKE...close but still not right.


Okay so you think Boss Hogg was based on this guy?

Warren summons the muse...a boilermaker.

No fruitstands were harmed in the making of this film.
