Product Details

This slice-of-life comedy both documents and satirizes small town life in a rural Texas town where the only entertainment in the day is the roller rink and at night the local drive-in. Hosting a cross-section of the town's population, the drive-in comes to life at night parents show up with their kids in tow, teenage paramours arrive with their dates, and the local gangs fuel their rivalry under the gigantic screen and at the snack bar. The film playing is a '70s staple: the disaster movie. Tension builds on the screen and also among the patrons. Director Rod Amateau, producer/director of legendary television series "The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show" and "The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis," is no stranger to comedy, and this off-beat, little-known film (with a lesser-known cast) is a hilarious flashback to the seventies. Newly remastered.
