Moonrunners (1975) — Grady and Bobby Lee run moonshine for Uncle Jesse, who prides himself on his old-school moonshining methods, and refuses to buckle in to the 'big business moonshine' of Jake, who controls these parts for New York mobsters.
Moon Runners for some reason is almost NEVER mentioned as far as good decent 70's schlock and action movies, despite the Dukes of Hazzard connection. It's pretty rare - while it was shown on cable in the late 70's, it almost never shows up on TV at all nowadays.
Grady and Bobby Lee (later to become Bo and Luke Duke) run moonshine for Uncle Jesse, who prides himself on his old-school moonshining methods, and refuses to buckle in to the 'big business moonshine' of Jake, who controls these parts for New York mobsters. Fast-paced and entertaining, as the boys continue to get their moonshine through. Some excellent car chase action, and while the chase scenes aren't on par with say Dirty Mary Crazy Larry and also aren't as numerous as I thought I remembered, still decent enough and forgivable since the film is just fun to begin with. Definitely a film to be seen!
