David Decoteau on

High-Ballin’

Released 1978
Distributor AIP

Trucker movies replaced the western as ozoner staples during the 70s, but this Canadian entry is no White Line Fever, or even a Great Smokey Roadblock. Once again the big biz interests are trying to put the squeeze on independent truckers and once more they’re driven off the highway by their vindictive 18-wheelers. One of the last films released by American-International before it became Filmways.
