Smokey Bites the Dust ★ 1981 (PG)

Car-smashing gag-fest about a sheriff's daughter kidnapped by her smitten beau. Near-plotless and literally unoriginal: lifted footage from several other Corman-produced flicks, a technique that can aptly be called garbage picking. 87m/C VHS . Janet (Johnson) Julian, Jimmy (James Vincent) McNichol, Patrick Campbell, Kari Lizer, John Drew (Blythe) Barrymore Jr., Kedrick Wolfe, Walter Barnes; D: Charles B. Griffith; W: Max Apple; C: Gary Graver; M: Bent Myggen.
