White Lightning (1973)
When the police pick up Gator McKlusky for running moonshine, they agree to let him out of jail if he will help them capture the key figures in his moonshine operation. Since the suspected ring leader is the man who killed Gator’s little brother, he agrees to help out the cops to get himself out of prison and get his revenge.

As a 15 year old I watched parts of this movie being made. It was partly filmed in Benton Arkansas (30 miles S of LR). Benton was also the location for Sling Blade. My mom’s Volkswagen and my bicycle show up in this movie.

It really is a somewhat accurate view of the South in the 70’s from the rejection of hippies by “Good ole boys” to the Corrupt Sheriff, to the home for unwed mothers to the interaction of the races while still staying “respectfully apart”. The movie was not intended to be an Oscar contender it was intended to capitalize on Reynolds immense popularity at the time. It did this well. Ned Beaty shaved his head to give himself the proper receding hairline for a Southern sheriff, and many locals were cast. If you like car chases, and “good ole boys” you’ll love this. Otherwise you can watch it for it’s historical value as a peek at the South through Hollywood colored eyes.

In an interview with Larry King, Ned Beaty said this was the most important role of his career because it kept him from being typecast as a wimp after Deliverance. Diane Ladd and her daughter, Laura Dern are both in this film.
