No 15: Thunder Road 1958


This is definitely one of the cult classics that deserves a place in the top 15, with plenty to satisfy a gear heads needs, even if it is on the classical side of the fence. Starring the well loved Robert Mitchum, who plays the part of a Korean War veteran that takes over the family moonshining business and all the trouble that comes with it. A new battle pursues – with big-city gangsters trying to take over the business and the police who are trying to put him in prison. Classic Friday night movie. No 14 is a crime fest!
