Hell Drivers. 1957. Great Britain. Directed by Cy Endfield

MoMA Presents: Cy Endfield’s Hell Drivers

November 1–7, 2008 The Museum of Modern Art

After his promising Hollywood career was cut short by the blacklist, Cy Endfield made a name for himself in England with the now unjustly forgotten B-movie Hell Drivers (1957)—a tough, tense thriller about ruthless competition and racketeering among haulage truck drivers—as well as with later films like Zulu (1964) and Sands of the Kalahari (1965). Hell Drivers, which was preserved by the bfi, London, is presented in a special weeklong run as part of To Save and Project.
