Thunderbolt and Lightfoot

It's a draw: Clint Eastwood or Jeff Bridges, two kinds of cool, one composed, the other, crazy. But the heat's on in this directorial debut by Michael Cimino, soon to deliver Deer Hunter. Here, Thunderbolt (Clint) and Lightfoot (Jeff) are a couple of hoods setting up a heist in Montana. Thunderbolt got his moniker using a 20mm antitank gun to blow a safe; reckless and randy, Lightfoot is a bit, well, light on the IQ. T & L is a strange bromance with Bridges wearing a dress during the robbery and Clint's powerful cannon doing the manly thing. Look for a cameo by that Antichrist of Cool, Gary Busey.
