Description by OLDIES.com:
Its 30 years old and still truckin! This cult classic has been re-mastered and re-packaged for its 30th Anniversary. Citizen Band radio takes to the freeways for fast-lane thrills and fly-over spills. Trucker "Rubber Duck" (Kris Kristofferson) signals the big 10-4 when he and his unsuspecting ride along (Ali MacGraw) are chased through three states by a corrupt traffic cop named "Dirty Lyle" (Ernest Borgnine). The green light is sent out over the American CB airwaves for a convoy of truckers to help keep the police off his trail. Acclaimed and award winning director Sam Peckinpah steps on the gas for an all-action adventure jam-packed with sensational stunts and truck crashes around every turn!
Based on the song by C.W. McCall, Kris Kristofferson stars as Rubber Duck, a defiant truck driver who speeds through three states while a corrupt cop pursues him.
