Thunder Road Cast, Box Office Collection, Budget, Storyline

Thunder Road

Robert Mitchum stars as a Korean war hero who returns to his hometown in Tennessee and takes over his family’s bootleg moonshine business where he has to battle both the mob and federal agents. Not only did Mitchum star in the film, he wrote the story and the film’s theme song; Robert’s son Jim plays his younger brother in the film. Thunder Road is widely considered the best movie about moonshine bootleggers, and its climatic car chase is one of the finest ever captured on film.
