"The King of B-Westerns & Serials...VCI Entertainment ~ "Boo
J. Lovins | Missouri-USA | 04/09/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"VCI Entertainment presents "Bootleggers" (1974) (Dolby digitally remastered)...Under director/producer Charles B. Pierce, screenplay by Earl E. Smith, music composed by Jaime Mendoza-Nava, songs by Dorsey Burnette...the cast include Paul Koslo (Othar Pruitt), Dennis Fimple (Dewey Crenshaw), Slim Pickens (Grandpa Pruitt), Betty Bluett (Grandma Pruitt), Steve Ward (Silas Pruitt),Seamon Glass (Rufus Woodall), Joy N. Houck Jr. (Bobby Joe Woodall), Jimmy Clem (Big-un Woodall), Jaclyn Smith (Sally Fannie Tatum), Darlyn Ann Lynley (Leola Gauldin), Earl E. Smith (Sheriff), Charles B. Pierce (Othar Pruitt), James Tennison (Mr. Slayton). . . . .our story has to do with "Moonshine", running homemade whiskey in the Ozark the scene with newcomer Jaclyn Smith as she shoots a snake just before skinny-dipping in a mountain stream...Smith turns the tide on Paul Koslo and Dennis Fimple when she steals their cloths at the local swimming hole...funny cues at the general store with some of the oldtimer locals...exciting car chases from the sheriff and their rivals in selling their liquor...the film was renamed "Bootlegger's Angel" because of Jaclyn Smith the star of the TV Show "Charlie's Angels" in which she appeared...much in the same time period as "O Brother Where Art Thou?" from the Coen Brothers many nostalgic settings.....there is a great deal of entertainment for the serious "film-buff"...all courtesy of VCI Entertainment, who in my humble opinion is the best there is in restoring early serials and features like this one.

Own them now on DVD....if you crave action, drama and plenty of adventure then this is the place for all of the above...if you enjoyed this feature check out another as VCI Entertainment presents "Tennessee Partner" (1955) (Dolby digitally remastered), featuring John Payne, Ronald Reagan and Rhonda Fleming is based on a Bret Harte writings as our story takes place in a gold mining town in California where gambler John Payne finds it easier to take money at the poker table than digging for gold...a stranger riding into town played by Ronald Reagan saves Payne...Reagan known as Cowpoke becomes Tennessee's partner....but the place is full of rough characters....the story lines are excellent with outstanding action scenes and production with over an hours worth of entertainment

Great job by VCI Entertainment for releasing the "Bootleggers" (1974), digital transfere with a clean, clear and crisp print...looking forward to more of the same from the ''70s vintage...order your copy now from Amazon or VCI Entertainment, stay tuned once again with a top notch Westerns from saddle up and get ready for some hard riding and adventure that only VCI Entertainment (King of the Serials) can deliver...just the way we like 'em!
