my Keach post

Seeing Jesse's post about the dynamic pairing of Roger Moore and Stacey Keach brought THE DION BROTHERS aka THE GRAVY TRAIN to mind. I had a copy of this on VHS but don't know where it went to. A smartly scripted working class crime caper film, BROTHERS is an under rated gem. Recently screened at The Best of the QT Fest (and read more about that event here and here), there has been some new buzz about this film scripted by Terrence Malick and directed by Jack Starrett had a great grindhouse track record (RACE WITH THE DEVIL, THE LOSERS, CLEOPATRA JONES) and also did episodes of "The Dukes of Hazzard", the 1978 series "Big Bob Johnson and His Fantastic Speed Circus" (starring Charles Napier and George 'Buck' Flower!), "Starsky and Hutch", the short lived TV spin off "Beyond Westworld", in addition to doing acting in "The A-Team", "Hunter", "Knight Rider", "Hill Street Blues", BLAZING SADDLES and even RAMBO: FIRST BLOOD.

No trailer for the film online, but check out this great monologue by the Keachster in the opening credits and a fun little bathtub scene.
