Overview

Action specialist B. Reeves Eason socked Truck Busters through its breathless 58 minutes. Richard Travis plays independent trucker Casey Dorgan, who organizes his fellow drivers against the crooked machinations of crooked trucking executive Bonelli Don Costello. Things get personal when Casey's brother Jimmy Charles Lang is killed in a Bonelli-engineered "accident." Standing helplessly on the sidelines is heroine Eadie Watkins, played by Virginia Christine, later to gain nationwide fame as "Mrs. Olsen" in the Folger's Coffee commercials of the 1960s and 1970s. Truck Busters is a not-too-heavily disguised remake of the 1932 James Cagney-Loretta Young vehicle Taxi.
