It felt for a while like I was the only one carrying the ball for Fox Home Video’s DVD of Lamont Johnson’s The Last American Hero — now Glenn Erickson (a.k.a., DVD Savant) has stepped up to the plate. “This unpretentious and uncluttered mini-epic about moonshining and stock car racing in the rural south accomplishes an impressive feat,” he says. “It’s intelligent enough to make viewers forget the idiocy of good-ole-boy action comedies like Smokey and the Bandit and The Dukes of Hazzard.” The way I put it was, “There was only one high-velocity ’70s redneck film that was any good, and it wasn’t even a redneck film.”
