Sunday Feature Film: Hot Rod Rumble


The 1957 film “Hot Rod Rumble” starring Leigh Snowden and Richard Hartunian was a low-budget drag racing crime drama produced by Norman T. Herman. It told the story of a hot rod club that jumps to the wrong conclusion when a member of their club was killed in a car crash.
