Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry is a 1974 American action film directed by John Hough and starring Peter Fonda, Susan George, and Adam Roarke. It tells the story of two men who decide to steal $400,000 worth of marijuana from a criminal gang in Mexico.
The movie was filmed in and around the Big Bear Lake region of Southern California. It featured many cars that were modified to appear more exotic than they actually were.
Four decades on, Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry still gets your blood pumping with its endless action and realistic stunts. The plot revolves around three characters — Larry and Derek, two NASCAR drivers looking to build a faster car, and Mary, who is mad at Larry for running off after a one- night-stand. They get their cash, but law enforcement is hot on their trail. The trio drive around in an Impala SS, then later swap it for a big-block Dodge Charger (after all, the cops have Dodge Polara 440s). Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry is a fast-paced thriller.
