Being a product of the 1980's, there are more than a few under the radar gems that always made me smile (for one reason or another) or that kept me entertained. Based on the novel Free Fall by J.D. Reed, The Pursuit of D.B. Cooper was one of those titles that I found myself watching...

GANG WAY FOLKS, IT'S "THE PURSUIT OF DB COOPER"! - OVERLOOKED 1981 GEM IS THE HORROR
Very loosely based on the infamous airplane robbery, this one tanked big at the box office but is not
without it's merits. In fact, it's a pretty dang good chase movie. Instead of retelling the story of the robbery, this movie starts when he jumps off the plane and then fictionalizes his escapades as he gets chased by a wise detective played by Robert Duvall. Duvall is great as always and we also have a young hardly recognizable Paul Gleason in a great supporting performance. Give this one a chance. it's a goody.

THE OUTRIGHT HORROR!!
