Classic 1978 truck film Convoy will be shown in an outdoor cinema on Saturday 22 July at Convoy in the Park, organisers have announced.
The Sam Peckinpah-directed Convoy is regarded as one of the all-time great trucking-based movies. In it, driver ‘Rubber Duck’ (Kris Kristofferson) and his unsuspecting ride-along Melissa (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.
