The other single greatest pairing is Dean Martin and Sammy Davie Jr.

Hey pallies, well likes today's Dino-gram comes from one of the most interestin' tagged blogs that I have ever seen...."My Duck Is Dead." Just never know where Dino-love will come from next...anyway, from the dead duck pad comes a excellant review of one of our Dino's last big sceen appearances, the car romp, "The Cannonball Run."

The pallie who wrote this article definitely understands the made for laughs nature of this Dino-epic. Likes so loves how the writer dude pays tribute to our Dino and the Sam by sayin'..."The other single greatest pairing is Dean Martin and Sammy Davie Jr." Indeed our Dino and the Sam have such a blast together yuchin' it up as a couple of priests. Checks out numero duo of the screen shots for an amazin' pix of our Dino and Sam.

We thanks the pallies at "My Duck Is Dead" for promotin' this fun lovin' and swingin' screen romp and helpin' others to come to know, love, and enjoys the pleasures that only our Dino provides. To view this in it's original format, and for the abilty to download the flick, just clicks on the tagg of this here Dino-gram. Dino-diggin', DMP

A wild, illegal, and popular cross-country car is organized, and the eccentric entrants will do anything to win, including low-down, dirty tricks.

The plot of a cross-country road race is based on an actual event, the Cannonball Baker Sea to Shining Sea Memorial Trophy Dash, organized by Brock Yates to protest the 55 mph speed limit then in effect in the U.S. The Cannonball was named for Erwin G. "Cannonball" Baker, who in the roaring 20's rode his motorcycle across the country. Many of the characters are based on ruses developed by real Cannonball racers over the several years that the event was run.

This is one funny film. The chemistry is just so great. Burt Reynolds and Dom Deluis were meant to be together, just as Laurel and Hardy or Abbot and Costello. And Jack Elam. He is an American original. But the secondary big named talent is just as great. Roger Moore spoofing his James Bond character, Jamie Faar as an eastern prince, Mel Tillis and Terry Bradshaw. Farah Fawcett's clueless seriousness is right on the money to make it even funnier. The other single greatest pairing is Dean Martin and Sammy Davie Jr. Director Hal Needham has recreated the great American classic road race here. You just have to watch out for the dirty tricks. Relax and have fun with this one.

This movie was so funny and so many great stars.
I`ve lost count of how many times I`ve seen this.
I agree this was better than the second Cannonball Run.
That one started off good but got a little silly.
Still it was great to see Dean and Sammy together again.
Also loved the bloopers in the first movie :)
