Product Description
White Lightning will give you the jolt of your life! Burt Reynolds (Sam Whiskey) is Gator McKlusky, a moonshine runner who wages war against corrupt police officials in this two-fisted, four-wheeling action extravaganza. With adrenaline-pumping car chases, bone-crunching brawls and terrific acting by an all-star cast, including Ned Beatty, Diane Ladd, Bo Hopkins, Matt Clark and R.G. Armstrong. Gator is serving time in the Arkansas prison when he learns that a ruthless and corrupt sheriff (Beatty) has framed and killed his baby brother. Swearing vengeance, Gator agrees to go undercover to expose the dirty sheriff, going to any lengths to get the goods and make him pay for the crime. Top-notch direction by Joseph Sargent (Taking of Pelham One Two Three) with a wonderful script by William W. Norton (Gator).

    5Shaky Puddin'!
    By Stryder
    I read some negative reviews regarding censorship and one or two that mentioned this disc having the wrong region coding, but I found no such problems. The case and disc were in fantastic shape. It was the first time I had seen this movie and it was stellar! Funny, packed with fun and action.

    I love how this movie captures a time that seems to me to be long forgotten. The pool hall in one scene and the awesome cars and trucks in the others. Ned Beatty plays a good jerk. Pay special attention to Bo Hopkins and Matt Clark. I've seen Matt Clark in other movies, but none where he was this young.

    Get this movie. You won't be disappointed.

    5"Shakey Puddin'" - Do People Really Say That?
    By Ed Urd
    Great bit of nostalgia and a damn fine (fun) little film. I'd always assumed it was his performance in 'White Lightning' that landed Burt Reynolds the gig in 'Deliverance,' but nope, 'Deliverance' came first, who knew? Those two movies and his Brando impersonation in the Twilight Zone episode 'The Bard' were always my favorite BR roles. And 'White Lightning' was shot in the same rural areas where a lot of my relatives lived back then, so watching it is like coming home. That front porch at Gator's parents' house sure looks familiar.

    5Burt is the best!
    By Viper
    Burt is the best! Aside from the 1971 Galaxie 500 with a 400-4, 4 speed, in a 4door car, this movie is awesome. Burt is in jail and receives some really crappy news about his little brother, determined to get out and handle his business, he eventually turns peoples lives into a living hell. Great support actors as well. Just real early Burt Reynolds stuff.
