The truck stops here!
Mark L. Lester directed this sexploitative actioner from 1974 about truck-stop hookers battling the Mafia to keep control over their brothel. (Yeah, movies like this could only come out of the 70’s.) The film starred the gorgeous, former Playboy Playmate Claudia Jennings, who also added significant eye-candy to films like ‘Gator Bait, Deathsport and David Cronenberg’s Fast Company. Jennings was being considered for one of the lead roles in “Charlie’s Angels” in 1979 when she died in a car wreck at the age of 29, while Lester later hit box-office gold by directing Arnold Schwarzenegger in Commando.
