As we start off our new season examining the films of Ron Howard, we're starting at the beginning. Howard has left the comfortable TV confines of the sleepy streets of Mayberry and 1950s suburban Milwaukee to begin his rise to one of Hollywood's most successful and prolific directors.

From 1977, it's the rollicking car crash action-comedy Grand Theft Auto. Produced by Roger Corman, this drive-in cult oddity was Howard's first theatrically-released feature film. After spending his entire young life in show business, what happens when Howard first climbs behind the camera? Strap in with Nick and Chris to find out.
