A Small Town in Texas: Director Jack Starrett did a great job with (I'm guessing) a low budget in this "Macon County Line"-ish film. Timothy Bottoms, in a rare role playing a tough character, stars as a convict fresh out of prison. He returns to his small hometown to reconnect with his buddy Art Hindle and girlfriend Susan George. He finds out that George was sleeping with sleazy sheriff Bo Hopkins while he was locked up. Complications arise and soon Bottoms is running from the law once again. Some really great action / crash scenes in this one. Plus you get exploitation regular George "Buck" Flowers playing a hillbilly ('natch) - see below.
Kiss My Grits: This Southern fried exploitation is much lighter in tone as Bruce Davison and Susan George team up. Davison is a good ol' boy who pals around with fellow shit-kicker Bruno Kirby. He gets in trouble with the law, falls for Susan George and pisses off her boyfriend Anthony Franciosa. It's unusual seeing Francioisa play a comical bad guy with a Texas accent but he pulls it off! A PG-rated rarity.
NOTE: This is a special Two Disc set priced at $30.00
