The 1st Trucker Movie to come out of Hollywood

Before Convoy and all the rest came this Bogart film in 1940.


You can check out the trailer by clicking here.
This is part of my ongoing research on how big rigs have been depicted in entertainment. I thought this film was really interesting because the
story has a great twist AND it shows several different kinds of rigs from back in the day. Unlike some of the other more mindless films about rigs that came along in the 70’s, this movie grows on you after watching it for 15 mins. Its avail on Netflix if you would like to check it out.
