Double Edged Double Bill

197: Petey Wheatstraw, Smokey And the Bandit Drive Through 1977

February 22, 2022

Forty five years ago, cinema changed forever with the release of... the two films we're covering for Double Edged Double Bill! So, Adam and Thomas are looking back at the year 1977 in film with a double feature that has nothing to do with stars nor the wars going on between them. First, Burt Reynolds, his moustache and Sally Field drive across the southern United States with the precious cargo that is Coors in Smokey and the Bandit! Then, Rudy Ray Moore makes a deal with the devil to seek vengeance and make bizarre faces in Petey Wheatstraw! Together, our duo answer the crucial questions. What is the line between intentional and unintentional comedy? How did CB radio culture become a thing? Which two films will they choose for next week's episode on Robert Pattinson? Well, grab your cane infused with the powers of Satan and hop in your TransAm so you can listen to find out!
