High Ballin’ (Movie – 1978)
High-Ballin’ is a 1978 Canadian action-comedy film about truckers directed by Peter Carter.
Jerry Reed plays the “Iron Duke,” an independent trucker who stands up to the local trucker boss, King Carroll, who tries to drive independent truckers out of business through intimidation tactics by a gang led by his partner Harvey. Duke’s friend Rane, played by Peter Fonda, comes to visit his friend and ends up helping him. Rane and Pickup suggest hauling a load of illegal liquor to a lumber camp, in order to become secure enough to resist King and Harvey’s pressure, and thus inspiring other independents to resist as well.
