Blah blah blah blah another edition of Screen Capture Theatre! This time it's the 1954 film ...
|Look at that truck crashing and blowing up! It has|
nothing to do with the plot!
|No, this movie isn't about trucks. It's about|
race cars, specifically this sleek white Jaguar driven
by the equally sleek Dorothy Malone.
|Dorothy is the fast one, and John Ireland is the furious one.|
He's an escaped prisoner who doesn't take to answering
questions, not even if they're asked by Zach Galifianakis.
|John takes Dorothy and her car hostage and won't even let|
her go to the bathroom.
|They cleverly elude police roadblocks because their car|
is so inconspicuous.
|John still doesn't let Dorothy go to the bathroom ...|
|... until they enter a road race as a way of escaping to Mexico.|
|At the race Dorothy meets an old flame ...|
|... but she's starting to take a liking to John ...|
|... and when they shack up together overnight they|
create a few sparks of their own.
|Then it's race day!|
|John has left Dorothy behind for her own safety...|
|... and through the miracle of rear projection he crashes|
past customs and into Mexico.
|But wait! Dorothy's old flame is involved in a|
startlingly realistic crash with a twig.
|By stopping to save the old flame, John demonstrates his|
decency. And he and Dorothy start smokin' again.
