Isotope Guerrilla Cult Theatre Presents George Hamilton's Evel Knievel
In an effort to make sure everybody who wanted to get their mini-comics in for this year's competition had easy access to the latest info, our Guerrilla Cult Theatre was pushed back until today. But just because it's late doesn't mean we're skimpin' on the quality, no sir! This week we're rocking your world with America's greatest living icon himself...
This 1971 biographical flick stars the leather-faced George Hamilton in his least celebrated role. Jam-packed and overflowing with lovingly recreated Knievel speeches, a massive amount of actual bone-snapping Knievel footage, and the irrepressible bigness of Montana's craziest son, this crusty cinema will have you wincing in pain as you watch Knievel's famous crash at Caesar's Palace in glorious slow-motion.
Here at the Isotope we're huge fans of the folks who experience life with the throttle wide open, and no one embodies that more than Evel Knievel. A living legend who's jaw-dropping daredevil exploits made our young selves scream with excitement, whose nearly indestructible toy line tore up our childhood backyards, and who's outrageous between stunt antics have elevated Knievel far beyond the typical run of the mill celebrity.
