Boon Hogenbeck is not one to be left “down on the farm.” No sirree! So he borrow's his boss's brand new automobile and heads out for Memphis--it's to be the time of his life!
(Remember: "to reive" means "to steal"!)Steve McQueen is the irrascible young Hogenbeck, and, together with the 12-year-old grandson of the car's owner, and his black stable hand, they head for a wild adventure that none of them could have predicted. Once they arrive (from Mississippi--this is early 20th century, mind you) in Memphis, they lodge in a local cat house (Boon has a friend who
works there), and the fun begins. Based upon a William Faulkner novel, the humor is anything but Faulkner (who would have thought the Nobel Prize winner would have had a
sense of humor, as it certainly doesn't show up in his other novels!).
