Convoy, directed by Sam Peckinpah, is a 1978 action film based upon the country song "Convoy" by C.W. McCall and Chip Davis. "Rubber Duck" Penwald (Kris Kristofferson) is a big-rig truck driver crossing Arizona. While he is flirting with a beautiful woman in a sports car, corrupt sheriff "Dirty Lyle" Wallace (Ernest Borgnine) pulls Rubber Duck over and shakes him down for money. Paying off sheriff Wallace doesn't get the corrupt cop off Rubber Ruck's back, and instead the sheriff follows Rubber Duck and his fellow truckers to a truck stop, where he makes the mistake of trying to mess with the men again. The truckers whip sheriff Wallace and a few other police officers in a fist fight, and then take off, with the police in hot pursuit. But the police don't realize that truckers stick together and, in a move to help Rubber Duck evade capture, truckers from all over the country converge upon, forming a mile long convoy of trucks ready to take on any corrupt police who get in their way.moreless
