and a very young Sean Connery
Hell Drivers is a hard-as-nails action picture realistically set in a bleak late-1950s England. Baker plays Tom Yately, an ex-con who takes the only job he can get--truck driving at break neck speeds for a corrupt manager (Hartnell) and brutal foreman (McGoohan). The constant short runs and competition between the drivers makes for an intense atmosphere which inevitably explodes into violence. Baker's only friend is an Italian ex-POW played sensitively by Herbert Lom, while Peggy Cummings is a remarkably free-spirited heroine for a film of the time. Baker himself is superb, quietly tough, and broodingly charismatic,McGoohan is compellingly male violent and Hartnell simply chilling.
A very early supporting role for a very young Sean Connery make this a great film from a time so long ago.
