THUNDER ROAD, the 1958 cult film starring Robert Mitchum, was released on Blu-ray earlier this week by Shout! Factory. The film also features an impossibly young Mitchell Ryan almost a decade before taking the role of Burke Devlin on DARK SHADOWS. Here's what Ryan has to say about the movie:
THUNDER ROAD is available on Blu-ray from Amazon."I was twenty-three years old and on my first movie set. I was nervous as hell and stayed to the side away form the camera. I had a small scene with Mitchum who was just short of being a god and at the height of his popularity. He stood by the camera joking with the crew. At last I heard my scene called, at which point Mitchum walked over to me, was silent for a second and then said, 'Remember, I'm big Mitch and you're Little Mitch.' He looked grim then burst out laughing and said, 'Let's do this fucking thing.'"
