Lucas Doolin is the king of the moonshine road. Doolin delivers home made booze in tanks installed in heavily customized cars. Doolin's rough and ready attitude rankles some of his fellow Kentucky still brewers, and when a city bootlegging syndicate begins buying up local stills, a road war breaks loose. It's syndicate versus the independents with the Feds moving in on everybody.
Mitchum is the top man behind the wheel and the top man behind
this production, acting as producer from his own story. Mitchum's
cool élan under any circumstances is perfect for Doolin. There
are lot of close-ups behind the wheel with Mitchum's tired eyes
cannily picking up cars in pursuit of his pay load. Singer
Keeley Smith plays a singer in love with Doolin, and yes, she
gets to exercise her musical talents a bit. Jim Mitchum,
Robert's son, plays his Dad's kid brother, mooning about
hungry for his own chance at road running. Gene Barry is the
Federal Agent dutifully pursuing the bootleggers.
