DRAG RACER (1971)
U.S. film. Very rare and seldom seen youth-oriented racing movie featuring Deborah Walley. It's the story a young man's efforts to get a ride in a top fuel dragster. Jeff, a wannabe drag racer, lucks-out while flogging his street-car at the local strip when a dragster team fires their driver and gives Jeff a chance to prove himself. Absolutely tons of cool drag racing action! While trying to stay focused on racing, Jeff has troubles with his snooty, upper-class girlfriend. He dumps her and starts to dig a cute little hippie chick (Deborah Walley). Cool rock and roll club scene with hip-hugger-mid-drift-go-go girls (with pointy nipples), shakin' their butts on the dance floor! Rock group performs "Florida," and "Virginia." Songs by Dick Campbell and Keypashine. Mark Slade, Jeremy Slate, Deborah Walley, John Davis Chandler, Preston Pierce, Mark Hopkins, Karen Swanson, Paul Smith, Kitty Murray, Stafford Morgan, Jeff Bushelman. Drag Racer!
