Love Means Never Having To Say “Slow Down, Dammit”

Stuart, Jakob, and Brock take a ride with 70s sex symbol Ryan O’Neal (Love Story) for a podcast review of his underrated crime caper, The Driver. Before hitting the big time with gritty action flicks 48 HRS and The Warriors, Walter Hill directed this stylish game of cat-and-mouse between a stoic wheelman and tenacious cop, Bruce Dern (Silent Running). Can this slick antihero get away with the money and French babe Isabelle Adjani (Nosferatu) without firing a gun?  Find out when you put down the sports page, and become a March Now Playing Patron.
