Chuck Norris stars in Don Hulette's 1977 truckin'/kickin' epic Breaker! Breaker!, also starring George Murdock, Jack Nance, Terry O'Connor, Miranda Garrison, and The Great John L.
Trucking! (Barely.) Kicking! (Plenty!) Armwrestling! (More than you'd think.) Beards and mustaches! (Some, but not on Chuck.) CB talkin'! (Poor.) Dirt bikin'! (Yes! But they even make that weird.) Plus doll bars! Shakespeare! Salad! Star Trek V! Dirty Dancing! Vans, flies, answering the phone, and other 70s relics. Also, jumping through a window will mess you up.
