Backyard Movies 1981 Comedy! Cannonball Run & Stripes! says
For week three of our month-long 35th anniversary tribute to the films of 1981, the category is COMEDY with Cannonball Run and Stripes! Here is a little bit about the movies:

First up, we have the ridicculus cross-country road race movie, Cannonball Run. There are basically like, a hundred stars in this movie ranging from the leads to micro-cameos...try and catch 'em all! The Cannonball Run is a 1981 American-Hong Kong comedy film starring Burt Reynolds, Jackie Chan, Roger Moore, Dom DeLuise, Farrah Fawcett, and an all-star supporting cast filmed in Panavision. It was directed by Hal Needham, produced by Hong Kong's Golden Harvest films, and distributed by 20th Century Fox. One of 1981's most successful films at the box office, it was followed by Cannonball Run II (1984), and Speed Zone (1989). This and the 1984 sequel were the final film appearances of actor Dean Martin.

I don't think I have to give much of an introduction to Stripes. This classic Bill Murray/Harold Ramis vehicle was a staple of 80's/90's cable and still remains a much beloved classic. Stripes is a 1981 American buddy military comedy film directed by Ivan Reitman, starring Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, Warren Oates, P. J. Soles, Sean Young, and John Candy. Several actors including John Larroquette, John Diehl, Conrad Dunn and Judge Reinhold were featured in their first significant film roles. Joe Flaherty, Dave Thomas, Timothy Busfield and Bill Paxton also appeared early in their careers.
