Description by OLDIES.com:
The Cannonball Run
brings Burt Reynolds, Roger Moore, Farrah Fawcett, Dom DeLuise, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and an all-star cast to the starting line of the ultimate auto race, a madcap cross-country scramble that roars full-speed ahead.
Hal Needham, the director of such souped-up hits as Smokey And The Bandit, Hooper and Smokey And The Bandit II is at the helm of a wild action-comedy inspired by an actual event: The Cannonball Sea-To-Shining-Sea Memorial Trophy Dash, an anything-goes, all-stops-out - and thrillingly illegal - competition that has grown to legendary proportions.
A cross-country car race provides the plot for this action-packed madcap comedy with an all-star cast. The fun continues from coast to coast with the likes of Burt Reynolds, Jackie Chan, Roger Moore, Farrah Fawcett, Dean Martin, Mel Tillis, Sammy Davis Jr., and dozens of others.
- The film spawned a sequel that starred much of the same cast, with the addition of the likes of Susan Anton, Shirley MacLaine, Telly Savalas, and Catherine Bach.
