Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry

( 3 )

Overview

This high-octane chase movie, well remembered by genre fans for its hellacious stunt work and witty performances from Susan George and Peter Fonda in the title roles, gets a souped-up release on DVD in this edition from Anchor Bay. Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry has been transferred to disc in letterboxed format at the widescreen aspect ratio of 1.85:1, and has also been enhanced for anamorphic play on 16x9 monitors.

Overview

This high-octane chase movie, well remembered by genre fans for its hellacious stunt work and witty performances from Susan George and Peter Fonda in the title roles, gets a souped-up release on DVD in this edition from Anchor Bay. Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry has been transferred to disc in letterboxed format at the widescreen aspect ratio of 1.85:1, and has also been enhanced for anamorphic play on 16x9 monitors. The transfer is pin-sharp and colorful, and the source materials are flawless; this movie probably hasn't looked this good since it hit drive-in screens in 1974. Viewers get three options for audio playback -- new high-impact stereo mixes in Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround Stereo, as well as the original theatrical mix in Dolby Digital Mono, all of which sound crisp with lots of presence. The dialogue is in English, with closed captioning in English and no subtitles or multiple language options. Anchor Bay has loaded this disc with bonus materials, most notably a 30-minute documentary on the making of the film including new interviews with Fonda, George, and director John Hough and plenty of inside dirt on how the incredible stunts were done. Also on board is a similarly informative commentary track from Hough, as well as trailers, television and radio spots; a gallery of still photos, biographies and filmographies for Fonda, George and Hough; and even a vintage television commercial for the 1969 Dodge Charger used in the movie (though it includes precious little footage of this hunk of mighty mopar in action). Anyone who digs '70s car chase action will get a kick out of Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry, and this DVD release gives the pic all the power it needs.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
This fast-paced drive-in favorite is one of the more distinctive entries in the car-chase genre. Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry differs from other car-chase fare like Smokey and the Bandit and The Gumball Rally because it is as much a heist movie as it is a car-chase adventure. Leigh Chapman and Antonio Santean's script gives the film a distinctly antiheroic flavor that makes it feel like a low-budget descendent of Bonnie and Clyde. Larry and Deke pull the supermarket heist that opens the film with cold-blooded efficiency and the attraction between Larry and Mary is as volatile as it is magnetic. The script is also notable for its odd yet thoroughly quotable dialogue; the exchanges between Mary and Larry are laden with creative epithets and the automotive shop-talk between Deke and Larry is full of gearhead jargon guaranteed to make viewers scratch their heads. John Hough's direction rises to the script's lean feel by keeping the pacing taut and maintaining a gripping sense of narrative tension from start to finish. Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry also benefits from solid acting by a crew of genre professionals: Fonda's trademark ambivalence fits Larry perfectly, George brings a believable fieriness to Mary, and Roarke manages to be low key and intense all at once as Deke. These colorful leads are balanced by some effective supporting turns, the best being Vic Morrow as the grizzled but dedicated Franklin and an uncredited Roddy McDowall in a believably frazzled turn as the supermarket chief whose family gets ransomed. All in all, Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry is a gritty but stylishly helmed B-movie that is worth the hunt for car-chase film fanatics.

    Greatest Car Chase Ever Made!

    Finally Dirty Mary Crazy Larry is on DVD! The first time I seen this movie was around 1974 at a local drive-in, double featured with another classic Vanishing Point. The cast (Peter Fonda, Susan George, Adam Roake and Vic Morrow) deliver a fantastic performance. And with director John Hough at the helm. Dirty Mary Crazy Larry will always be the #1 car chase classic of all-time!
