In 1957 - Stanley Baker and Sean Connery had a work-out with Zulu Director Cy Endfield in 'Hell Drivers' - a neglected classic - but you can see it on BBC2 on Monday 2nd April at 11.30am in the morning. As the graffiti often reminds us 'Nostalgia isn't what it used to be'.

I agree. I really liked the film, which I thought showed the truckers to be quite a tough bunch, as for their driving - frightening ! Shocked

I remember it well, because it brought back memories of seeing my father when he was driving a large rugged-looking truck when I was young, though not driving in a similar fashion as the film.
