The Gravy Train

The Dion Brothers

1974

Jack Starrett
Director

The brothers Dion leave their dead end jobs with the ambition of setting up a seafood restaurant. To make a few bucks, they get involved in an armoured car heist. Complications ensue.

Oddball mix of humour and violence as only the 70s could serve up, ending in eye popping confrontation in a building under demolition.

Written by Terrence Malick under the pseudonym David Whitney.

Not available on DVD.
