Viva Knievel

1977 PG

Daredevil Evel Knievel stars as himself in this kitschy 1970s adventure. Everything's warm and wonderful when the motorcycle king visits the orphanage, but danger awaits when he heads to Mexico to perform a death-defying stunt. An evil drug lord (Leslie Nielsen) plans to have Knievel killed and use his coffin to smuggle cocaine across the U.S. border. Gene Kelly, Lauren Hutton, Red Buttons, Cameron Mitchell and Frank Gifford co-star.
