Overview
The Cannonball Run brings Burt Reynolds, Roger Moore, Farrah Fawcett, Dom DeLuise, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr. and an all-star cast to the starting line of the ultimate auto race, a madcap cross-country scramble that roars full-speed ahead.

Hal Needham, the director of such souped-up hits as "Smokey and the Bandit," "Hooper" and "Smokey and the Bandit II" is at the helm of a wild action-comedy inspired by an actual event: The Cannonball Sea-To-Shining-Sea Memorial Trophy Dash, an anything-goes, all-stops-out - and thoroughly illegal - competition that has grown to legendary proportions in the last ten years.
