Now Available - Trucker's Woman

If the old dusty carousel of audio cassettes at a truck stop could be distilled into a movie, this would be that movie. From the title to the fashion to the hair to the faces, one of the most 70s things you will ever experience is Trucker’s Woman!

It’s a classic tale: a middle-aged man drops out of college when his trucker father is murdered by trucking mobsters, then immediately becomes a trucker himself so he can get to the bottom of things. Because there’s obviously no other way! Along the path to vengeance, the titular Trucker makes time to make time with various truck stop ladies at various truck stops and other trucking-based locations. Which one of these women is the Trucker’s Woman from the title? Not clear!

All that, plus a nice role for Doodles Weaver! Don’t know who Doodles Weaver is? You will after this. He’s easily one of the top five most famous people with the name “Doodles,” after all.
This movie is so 70s that it’s basically the Guy From Harlem of trucking movies, and that’s high praise indeed. Hop in the cab with Mike, Kevin, and Bill, and tune the CB radio to Trucker’s Woman!

This looks right up my alley. And by the director of Starfighters too. He has a tiny but fearsome oeuvre for these guys to tackle.

Ugh, does this have Jim Stafford being staggeringly unfunny in it too?

At about 38:50 "I agree with every face this guy in the foreground is making."

Oh man, I wish this guy was in more of the movie. He's the only believable character.

This whole movie looks like Herb Tarlek was their wardrobe consultant.
