From John Schlesinger, the legendary director of Midnight Cowboy and the not-even-bordering-on-the-legendary The Believers comes the 1981 road comedy Honky Tonk Freeway.

Welcome to Ticaw, Florida, a tiny town just off the highway with big dreams of attracting huge tourist dollars. But when construction of the new freeway leaves them without a crucial exit ramp, the desperate townsfolk decide to take motor matters into their own hands. Now with the help of a water-skiing elephant, a rampaging rhino, some well-placed explosives and an invasion of very odd travelers, this busy freeway is about to take one extremely strange detour.

Honky Tonk’s super-duper cast includes Beau Bridges (Norma Rae), Hume Cronyn (The Parallax View), Beverly D’Angelo (Frat Pack), William Devane (The Kane Files), George Dzundza (Basic Instinct), Teri Garr (Firstborn), Howard Hesseman (Amazon Women on the Moon), Geraldine Page (Summer and Smoke), David Rasche (Crime of the Past), Daniel Stern (Very Bad Things) and Jessica Tandy (Still of the Night).

-Brand New 4K Master
-NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historian/Filmmaker Daniel Kremer and Film Historian/Biographer Nat Segaloff
