The Great Lester Boggs (1975)

Description

Another Harry Thomason (photo right) film, this story is about Malcolm's cross-country motorcycle odyssey - just for the experience – that "boggs" down in Arkansas, where he acquires his sidekick LeRoy.  He befriends moonshine-drinkin', bi-plane stunt pilot Lester Boggs, falls in love with level-headed Susan, and, all the while, confounds Sheriff Billy Bob and his department. Notable stars in the case include Dean Jagger, Alex Karras and singer Scott McKenzie, best-know for performing the 1967 hit “San Francisco – Be Sure to Wear Flowers In your Hair.”

One review describes it this way. “The movie is smartly set in the beautiful town of Beebe, Arkansas (rated as America's most "Rockwellian" representative city). Don't miss a chance to turn back time with this near lost treasure...fire up your grill, pop-a-top, pop some corn and enjoy!!!!”
