Reviewed by Jeffrey Kauffman, June 10, 2013
By the 1970s, both Jane and Peter Fonda had emerged from the rather formidable shadow cast by their father Henry, and both had achieved a certain iconic status as leading members of the counterculture. Peter of course had become an instant exemplar of the so-called "youth movement" when he co-wrote, produced and starred in 1969's Easy Rider, a film which many attribute as jump starting the Independent Era which would soon flourish in Hollywood and help put yet another nail in the coffin of the big studios. Jane had already started making waves with various activist causes in a number of social issues, including Civil Rights and, a bit later, the brief Native American occupation of Alcatraz. But shortly after Easy Rider stormed the beaches of American cinema, Jane became probably the most notable celebrity to regularly voice anti-Vietnam sentiment, including her infamous trip to North Vietnam that resulted in the "Hanoi Jane" soubriquet which still follows her around in certain right leaning circles. What's kind of ironic about all of this is that both of the Fonda children actually started their screen careers rather traditionally. Both Fondas got some training on the stage before matriculating to the silver screen, but in the early 1960s at least, both of them essayed roles that probably any young actor or actress would have played. Jane, while showing her range in such early pieces as Walk on the Wild Side, was just as often a glamour girl or "nice" girlfriend type, while Peter was a surprisingly bland leading man in such fare as Tammy and the Doctor. But there must be an almost genetic political streak in the Fonda bloodline; many people either don't know or don't remember that Henry himself was a vocal supporter of Democratic candidates and office holders through the years. And with success (and in Jane's case at least, an Oscar for 1971's Klute) at hand, both Fondas could pretty much set their own course in the 1970s. Which brings us to the rather odd pairing of two Peter Fonda films in this Shout! Factory release.

Dirty Mary Crazy Larry / Race with the Devil Blu-ray, Overall Score and Recommendation
This is a fun, if odd, little two-fer that offers a double dip of Peter Fonda in two completely different films. Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry is the lesser of these two outings, but it's hugely entertaining if taken on its own relatively unambitious terms. Race With the Devil is rather unexpectedly scary and deserves to be better known than it generally is. Shout! Factory has done a great job all around with this release and it comes Recommended.
