"The world meets nobody halfway"

A truck driver arm-wrestles his way towards custody of his estranged son. It can only be the Cannon classic OVER THE TOP, the movie that Sylvester Stallone said no to so many times yet proved every man has a price by saying yes to $11m.

Joining me on the road to Las Vegas is Fergus Higginson, the man behind the hugely successful Manchester Classic Films, bringing movie greats (and Over The Top) to big screens in the Greater Manchester area. Follow at Facebook and Twitter.

At the time of publishing, the film is available in good quality on YouTube here. Go on, treat yourself.

Episode 50 is next... And Betamax is rolling into Beverly Hills...
