Double Feature Review Reboot: Bobby Thunder

Jim Farris returns with a groan of complaint and we discuss the movies Bobby Deerfield and Thunder Alley. Al Pachino and Fabian are the two leading men in these two race car movies and Jim and I enjoy trashing them both. Annette Funicello is also mentioned and yet we go the entire podcast without singing the Mickey Mouse Club theme. How did that happen?

Here’s a synopsis of the two movies as lifted from Wikipedia.

Thunder Alley is a 1967 film about auto racing, directed by Richard Rush and starring Annette Funicello and Fabian Forte. It was released by American International Pictures.

Bobby Deerfield is a 1977 American romantic drama film directed by Sidney Pollack and starring Al Pacino and Marthe Keller. Loosely based on the 1961 novel Heaven Has No Favorites by Erich Maria Remarque, the film is about a famous American race car driver on the European circuit who falls in love with an enigmatic Swiss woman who is terminally ill. For his performance in the film, Al Pacino was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture Actor.
