TRUCK STOP WOMEN

year: 1974 cast: Lieux Dressler, Claudia Jennings, John Martino rating: ***
Right from the start, Mark L. Lester knew how to direct vapid movies with the precision of a genius maverick. Or something.

The often confusing, maze-like plot has a band of truck stop women i.e. waitress/whores running their own trucking company, fighting against the corporate-backed mob (or is it a mob-backed corporation?) who wants to take over their lucrative operation.

While seemingly a Claudia Jennings exploitation film, this really stars Lieux Dressler as the head of the trucker-loving hookers, who doesn't trust her sexy, jealous daughter, Claudia, running around with gangster John Martino ("Paulie" from THE GODFATHER).

After suffering past the first half, so tailor-made for a drive-in audience one forgets to actually pay attention, you'll be drawn in as the good girls vs. bad guys battle ensues: including machine guns, road chases and lots of great explosions.
