Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (1974)

In writer/director Michael Cimino's debut film starring Jeff Bridges and Clint Eastwood in early roles:

  • the astonishing 'rabbit shooting' sequence in which a deranged and lunatic hillbilly (Bill McKinney), crazed by his leaking exhaust pipe and carbon monoxide gas, emptied his trunk full of white rabbits into a field, and then began wildly shooting at them with a shotgun until hitchhiker John "Thunderbolt" Doherty (Clint Eastwood) knocked him out and then stated: "I don't know what the hell we're gonna do with all these rabbits?"
