OK, boys, no doubt I am out of town when you read this. Sorry, no actual pornography in this clip, just the opening sequence from one of my all-time fave films, El Paso Wrecking Corp. If you have one of those bad later copies of this video, this scene is rather chopped up and unintelligable (sp?) - but this is the scene where Richard Locke and Fred Halsted get fired from their jobs at the Kansas City Trucking Company, and therefore are off, on the road, to El Paso in search of work. The haunting theme music alone always gives me a woody!
