I-5 Smash-up: Lyon & Jones 1 of 3


Sue Lyon with her gang


Sue Lyon checked out by cop Tommy Lee Jones

Let’s establish some more about Sue Lyon in the 1976 television movie of the week, SMASH-UP ON INTERSTATE 5… Her character, Burnsey, is an antagonist in a story where a big highway crash is the real foe, occurring only during the beginning and end, quickly bookmarking 90 minutes of eclectic melodrama… We’ll get to her evil deed later on, but here’s a pic establishing her with her gang… And another shows Sue with a young actor named Tommy Lee Jones, whose character, a rookie cop with a pregnant wife in the hospital, couldn’t be more opposite… Take a wild guess on which character lives longer? And notice that Sue and Tommy have practically the same expression!
