Classic Trailer: Rolling Thunder (1977)

This trailer is wonderfully grainy and old-school; I love every second of it but I love the movie even more.

William Devane is perfectly cast as a recently released Vietnam POW called Major Charles Rane who is given a hero’s welcome in his Texas hometown. Things sour quickly, however: Rane’s wife has lost all love for him, his son doesn’t recognize him, and there are those in town who consider him “baby-killer.”

The movie co-stars one Tommy Lee Jones who plays Rane’s loyal friend Johnny Vohden; written by the great Paul Schrader Rolling Thunder is also directed by John Flynn who you’ll remember helmed Out for Justice, Lock Up and more.

If you’ve never seen Rolling Thunder now is the perfect time to check it out as it’s been recently remastered on Blu-ray.
