Editorial Reviews

It’s an Action-Packed Triple Feature Loaded With Car Chases, Crashes, Robberies, Explosions and a Little Moonshine!


Two sisters running an auto repair shop and their moonshine-running boyfriend are extorted into becoming undercover government agents to outwit the Dragon Lady of the Southern crime belt in Georgia Peaches. Starring singer Tanya Tucker, Dirk Benedict (The A-Team), Sally Kirkland and Terri Nunn (lead singer for the group Berlin), this action-packed comedy was produced by Roger Corman as a pilot for a possible television series.


Candy (Claudia Jennings, Gator Bait, DeathSport) and Ellie Jo (Jocelyn Jones, Tourist Trap) are a pair of sexy bank robbers who blast their way into small-town banks with a carload of dynamite in The Great Texas Dynamite Chase! When they take Slim (Johnny Crawford, Valley Of The Giants) hostage, it begins a thrill-packed crime spree across the state of Texas. Also starring Tara Strohmeier (Candy Stripe Nurses), Bart Braverman (Alligator) and Priscilla Pointer (Carrie).


Smokey Bites The Dust follows the rivalry between a small-town Southern sheriff and a small-town delinquent who steals cars and then destroys them with the sheriff’s daughter by his side. Starring Jimmy McNichol (Night Warning), Janet Julian (King Of New York, Humongous), William Forsythe (Raising Arizona) and Walter Barnes (High Plains Drifter), this action-packed comedy was directed by Charles B. Griffith (Up From The Depths) and co-produced by Gale Anne Hurd (The Terminator, The Incredible Hulk)

This 3 action-packed dvd collection give you a close-up view of early 70's southern chase movie with incompetent law enforcement.The best of the three dvd is "The Great Texas Dynamite Chase", starring Claudia Jenning("Gator Bait")and Jocelyn Jones("Tourist Trap"),two female Thelma & Louise type who rob banks with dynamite.This comedy-action flick has alot of hot nudity, car chases, graphic shooting and huge explosion.The Second dvd,"Georgia Peaches", is an entertaining tv pilot that starred , Dirk Benedict,Tanya Tucker,and Sally Kirkland. This failed tv pilot was country singer Tanya Tucker's first acting experience, and she sings most of her song in this movie. The story involves a moonshiner,female mechanic, and a country singer working with the government to catch a black market female boss selling both illegal tobacco and smuggling diamond.The last entry,"Smokey Bites The Dust",is a nerd version of "Smokey and the Bandit",starring Jimmy McNichol,brother of actress Kristi McNichol.McNichol's character does nothing, but get into stupid car chases with an inept Sheriff, while trying to win the heart of the Sheriff's daughter.All three movies show a time in the seventy, when films were cheesy,unpc,and stereotypical southern attidude.The cinematography of the 70's had all the natural setting with no CGI and the stunt-work that was roughly basic.The viewers who watched this dvd collection would feel the realism of car crashing as if they were the driver.

It's about time Roger Corman released a 3-movie collection of his car chase movies. This one is a tribute to Claudia Jennings who was in The Great Texas Dynamite Chase (1976). You can read what Roger Corman has to say behind the "Sharktopus" coupon inside.
With the success of the Smokey and the Bandit: Pursuit Pack: The Franchise Collection (1977, 1980, 1983) and Dukes of Hazzard tv series (1979-85), why not try to cash in and make some low-budget car chase movies?

Follow That Car (a.k.a. The Georgia Peaches) (1980) 87 mins.

Cast: Dirk Benedict, Tanya Tucker, Terri Nunn, Lane Smith, Sally Kirkland, Dennis Patrick, David Hayward, Burton Gilliam, Noble Willingham.

Dusty Tyree (Dirk Benedict) is smuggling moonshine across Georgia, however the motorcycle cops are on his tail. With his silver car made with hidden James Bond-like gadgets, he releases the moonshine on the road and sets it on fire. He made it safe to the garage.
Now he has a powerful woman, Vivian Stark (Sally Kirkland) after him.
Randolph Dukane (Lane Smith) wants Dusty to help in the capture of Vivian for her own smuggling of illegal tobacco butts. If Dusty, Sue Lynn (Terri Nunn) and Lorette (Tanya Tucker) go undercover, he will help them stay out of jail for the moonshine.

Made for television for a proposed tv series.

Filmed in Charleston, Johns Island, Waterboro, South Carolina.

Dirk Benedict made this movie after Battlestar Galactica (1978-79) and Galactica 1980 tv series', but before the A-Team tv series (1983-87).

Just gotta say this triple feature two disc DVD is a blast! Good to finally get the Claudia Jennings classic The Great Texas Dynamite Chase in anamorphic widescreen, is worth the price alone. The quality is good comparing to original pan and scan DVD. Still could look better. As for Georgia Peaches (aka Follow that car) from 1980 has a young Tanya Tucker and Terri Nunn (from new wave band Berlin) in a very decent anamorphic widescreen print of the international print. Looks really good for originally made for tv. As for Smokey Bites the Dust, it is sad that this is pan and scan and looks like a tape copy. Horrible transfer! Why didn't Shout try harder to get a decent print of this forgetful classic. Still a fun movie, but this bad transfer is hard to watch (and dark). The only special feature is two trailers. Sadly, the best transfer of the three is Georgia Peaches. Just wish the other two looked this good. Still, Claudia Jennings on DVD? I am sold! Thankfully this is DVD and not blu ray, boy they would look bad!

The Great Texas Dynamite Chase was fun to watch. These movies are truly dated. I would watch the other two films, if nothing better was available. Smokey Bites the Dust is basically a mash up of other Roger Corman car crash pieces. It has scenes from Grand Theft Auto, Eat My Dust, and I think even The Great Texas Dynamite Chase. It was a masterful piece of editing.

The Great Texas Dynamite Chase is a certified drive-in movie classic. Claudia Jennings and Jocelyn Jones play the sexy bank robbers who specialise in blowing things up - from bank vaults to police cars. There isn't as much car chase action in this film as in some of the other films of its kind - the emphasis is on humour, sexy dialogue and bedroom romps - but its fun from beginning to end.

Georgia Peaches was new to me. Roger Corman produced it as a pilot for a proposed television series. Since it was made for television it doesn't have any of the raunchiness that characterised the New World cinema releases, but it plays up the sexiness in a subtler way. Stars Terri Nunn and Tanya Tucker provide plenty of eye candy, and the story is fast-paced and fun. This is a must-see if you like Seventies-style car chase comedies.

Smokey Bites the Dust is not a classic. Director Charles B. Griffith was given the unenviable job of churning out a very cheap quickie which would recycle crash footage from some of New World's previous movies and link it together into a new story. While he was working with someone else's script, the film is (for better or worse) loaded with Griffith's unique style of humour including cartoonish characters and over-the-top slapstick. And it is also full of his friends - Kendrick Wolf, Dick Miller and Mel Welles (as an Arab named Abu Habib Bibubu)). Griffith's daughter also gives a memorable performance as a little girl who likes to smoke. The film is a mess, but for those who are fans of Griffith, Corman and New World Pictures it is fun to see all the familiar faces goofing around. And some of the newly shot car chase footage is reasonably exciting.

It is great to see The Great Texas Dynamite Chase and Georgia Peaches presented in anamorphic widescreen. Unfortunately, Smokey Bites the Dust is not presented in its original widescreen format, but it is the least of the three films.
