Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Picture.
Truck Turner is one of my favorite blaxploitation films. Isaac Hayes is just so damn charismatic and smooth as Mac “Truck” Turner, a bounty hunter who you really don’t want on your ass.
Uhura herself (Nichelle Nichols) has a vendetta against him and puts a price on his head and then all hell breaks loose. Damn, this movie is so much fun. It might not quite reach Dolemite levels of “what the hell am I watching?!?” insanity or Shaft’s iconic stature, but it’s right up there with the best of ‘em.

Tomorrow’s pic features an unthreatening director looking strangely scary and badass.
