Moonshine County Express is a 1977 action film directed by Gus Trikonis that tells the story of a moonshiner named J.B. Johnson, played by John Saxon, who is trying to evade the law in rural Georgia during the 1930s. The movie starts with J.B. and his team of moonshiners planning a big shipment of illegal liquor in order to sell it to a big-time buyer in Atlanta. The shipment is interrupted by federal agents, and J.B. narrowly manages to escape, leaving him with the job of trying to get the moonshine to Atlanta by any means necessary.

Meanwhile, a pursuing lawman named Roscoe P. Coltrane, played by William Conrad, is hot on J.B.'s trail. Coltrane is a hard-edged, no-nonsense agent who has been trying to catch J.B. for years. He's aided in his investigation by a woman named Chris Garrett, played by Susan Howard, who is assigned to go undercover as a member of J.B.'s crew.

The movie is full of action-packed car chases and shootouts as J.B. and his team of moonshiners try to evade the law and deliver the moonshine to Atlanta. J.B. is a charismatic and resourceful leader who keeps his team motivated and focused, even in the face of danger. He's also a bit of a ladies' man, and there are several scenes of him flirting with Chris, much to Coltrane's annoyance.

One of the standout scenes in the movie involves a car chase through the streets of Atlanta as J.B. tries to outrun the law. The chase is expertly choreographed and filmed, with lots of close calls and heart-stopping moments. The scene perfectly captures the high-octane excitement of the movie as a whole.

Another memorable scene involves an explosion at J.B.'s moonshine still, which sets off a chain reaction that destroys much of his operation. J.B. and his team are forced to regroup and come up with a new plan on the fly, which adds even more tension to an already suspenseful movie.

Overall, Moonshine County Express is a fun and exciting action movie that's perfect for fans of classic car chase films. The performances are solid across the board, with John Saxon giving a particularly charismatic and memorable performance as J.B. The movie is full of thrilling moments and exciting action sequences, and it's sure to keep audiences on the edge of their seats from start to finish.
