Happy New Year readers! I’ve finally returned – after a break of over a month with a new strip.
“Ain’t nobody can fly a car like Hooper.”
I saw this poster outside an Irish cinema whilst on holiday as a kid and it really captured my imagination! I so wanted to see it. The idea of ‘flying’ a car! Obviously he couldn’t fly a car – not even Burt Reynolds – but it was a funny tagline and a very very exciting poster.
I wonder what the film was actually like? That’s what I would have lain awake wondering at night. I didn’t see it. Still haven’t.
The posters in the 70s had to excite interest all by themselves – especially when the films were mediocre. Go on on then: tell me you really didn’t want to go and see see PIRAHNA? Or GRIZZLY?
