Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Rather than the obvious Springsteen reference (apparently he knew of the movie though its poster, but had not seen it when he wrote his song), I'll mention Mitchum's own recording "The Ballad of Thunder Road", in which his laid back delivery of the moonshine tale is supported by some hot pickin'.
....with the hard-to-believe Keeley Smith love interest.
... and the curious casting of Mitchum's son as his "younger brother."
"...thunder was his engine, white lightning was his load. There was thunder, thunder over Thunder Road."
