The story deals with two would-be NASCAR hopefuls; the driver, Larry (Peter Fonda), and his mechanic, Deke (Adam Roarke), who successfully execute a supermarket heist to finance their jump into the big-time auto racing world, extorting $150,000 in cash from the supermarket manager (Roddy McDowall) by holding his wife and daughter hostage.
In making their escape, they are confronted by Larry's one-night stand, Mary (Susan George), who convinces them to take her along for the ride (under the threat of her blowing the whistle on them both). After the heist is reported to the Sheriff, Captain Franklin (Vic Morrow) obsessively sets out to capture the trio in a dragnet, only to find his patrol cars woefully inadequate to catch Larry, Mary and Deke in a high-performance 1969 Dodge Charger.
The film is referenced several times in "Death Proof," the segment of the feature film Grindhouse which was directed by Quentin Tarantino. A clip of Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry is also visible in Tarantino's feature Jackie Brown.
Selected by Quentin Tarantino for the First Quentin Tarantino Film Fest in Austin, Texas, 1996.
