Old-fashioned fun

MOONSHINE COUNTY EXPRESS is a long-forgotten 'hillbilly' adventure full of illicit alcohol and car-chasing mayhem. The plot is simple in the extreme and involves a moonshiner being offed by a dastardly rivals. Said moonshiner's trio of sexy daughters decide to take over daddy's business and soon take the fight to the villain, as played by a moustache-twirling William Conrad. Shoot-outs and surprisingly tame snippets of exploitation follow. One thing I can say is that the cast give enthusiastic performances here, particularly the girls who do a sterling job of portraying drive and determination. John Saxon plays the good ol' boy helping them out although he's a little old for the role. Code Red have done a splendid job of restoring this for DVD release.

Hugely enjoyable 70's hicksploitation romp

Moonshiner Pap Hammer gets bumped off by vicious rival Jack Starkey (robustly played to the slimy hateful hilt by William Conrad). Hammer's three spitfire daughters -- headstrong Dot (a fine'n'feisty performance by Susan Howard), sassy Betty (luminous 70's drive-in goddess Claudia Jennings), and perky Sissy (adorable Maureen McCormick, Marcia on "The Brady Bunch") -- join forces with ace stock car driver J.B. Johnson (a lively and likable portrayal by the always reliable John Saxon) to get revenge on Starkey.

Director Gus Trikonis, working from a compact and eventful script by Hugh Smith and Daniel Ansley, keeps the entertaining story hurtling along at a snappy pace, presents a flavorsome downhome Southern-fried atmosphere, and stages the exciting vehicular action with rip-roaring gusto. Moreover, it's acted with zest by an excellent cast of familiar faces: Morgan Woodard as no-count flunky Sweetwater, Jeff Corey as drunken priest Hagen, Dub Taylor as the raucous Uncle Bill, Albert Salmi as bumbling Sheriff Larkin, Len Lesser as sleazy store owner Scoggins, and Candice Rialson as brash tart Mayella. Gary Graver's typically proficient cinematography provides an impressive polished look. Fred Werner's twangy score hits the sprightly harmonic spot. A really fun flick.

Backwoods babes become successful businesswomen

The three comely daughters of a backwoods moonshiner are left orphaned after their pappy and his crew are murdered by the goons of their fat cat competitor, who also blow the production still to smithereens in the hopes of running off the girls and taking over the property himself. Unfortunately for him, the ladies discover an underground stash of prime Prohibition-era bootleg whiskey--and they know just the right guy to act as their muscleman, the top-finishing stock car driver at the local speedway who runs "shine" between races. Cheap, barely-competent drive-in entry from Roger Corman and New World Pictures, amateurishly directed by Gus Trikonis. John Saxon (in flannel shirts and jeans) seems curiously misplaced as a good ol' boy, though William Conrad (with muttonchops) is a dandy villain and the ladies, Susan Howard, Claudia Jennings and Maureen McCormick, are spunky and attractive. The picture looks muddy and sounds terrible--and, with a PG rating, seems a little tame for the hillbilly genre--but B-movie completists will probably be satisfied by the energy and fast pace. *1/2 from ****
