You may know Charles Bronson from film classics like The Magnificent Seven
and the Death Wish
series, but he too spent time behind the wheel. Drafted into the Army in 1943, Bronson drove trucks for the Air Corps before becoming a tail gunner on a B-29 bomber.
Hasta La Vista, Baby
While on the road, one trucker found his true calling after watching Star Wars. Director James Cameron quit the trucking business and went on to become one of the biggest filmmakers in history — whose film Avatar was only recently de-throned as highest grossing domestic release by the latest Star Wars picture. Do you think his fascination with blowing up trucks in his movies is some kind of therapy?
Trucked by an Angel
After driving a cab, future gospel singer and Touched by an Angel actress Della Reese sought more money as a truck driver. Reese’s route had her hauling produce from Toledo to Detroit a few times a week. While she went on to become a household name, Reese enjoyed trucking, and especially liked that she never had to load or unload her truck!
