While hanging at his favorite dirt track, impressionable young Arizona gearhead Little Fauss (Michael J. Pollard) was taken in by the swagger of professional cycle racer Halsy Knox (Robert Redford). The slick-talking, exploitative Halsy swiftly takes the kid on as mechanic and partner--and takes constant advantage of him thereafter--but how long will it take before Little’s idol worship gets run off the road? Effective character study co-stars Lauren Hutton, Noah Beery, Jr., Lucille Benson. 99 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English.
Little Fauss And Big Halsy - DVD - If there was ever a mismatched friendship, it's the one between the womanizing, self-absorbed professional motorcyclist Big Halsy Knox (Robert Redford, The Sting) and the down-to-earth novice cyclist Little Fauss (Michael J. Pollard, Bonnie and Clyde) in Little Fauss and Big Halsy. - Halsy, having been barred from racing due to his on-track behavior, convinces Fauss to let him use his name in order to enter the next big race. Consistently belittled and taken advantage of by Halsy, Fauss's feelings of inferiority are compounded when the beautiful Rita (Lauren Hutton, American Gigolo) and Halsy meet. Friendship and loyalty will be tested in the dramatic adventure film Little Fauss and Big Halsy directed by Sidney J. Furie (Lady Sings the Blues) from a screenplay by Charles Eastman (Second-Hand Hearts). - Rounding out the cast are Noah Beery (Red River) and Lucille Benson (Duel) as Seally and Mom Fauss, Little's eccentric parents. Directed by: Sidney J. Furie
