During the final chase scene along the LA River, there are several shots from the car's driver's point of view of the helicopter, interspersed with shots from well above the helicopter looking down. From the ground, the helicopter appears to be hundreds and hundreds of feet above him. From the aerial view, the helicopter is perhaps one hundred feet above the ground. See more »
I just caught the end of this movie today. With a mind numbing chase between a car driving in the sewers of LA being chased by a police helicopter. In the movie, Grease, we had the same sewers used for a drag race...sans water. This time, poor Doug is driving a big old station wagon..with a ton of water..how is the car not flooded out because it was up to the door panel and over. Then Doug gets out of the car and climbs into the Sepulveda dam from the sewers leaving his car for some crazy teens to steal. The chopper lands on the dam...and the cop runs inside to immediately run into Doug with his booty from a kidnapping. So, Dumbrille, who is about 100 yrs old..actually 73, outruns the flatfoot cop who is in his twenty's. They make DD climb a ladder to try to escape after running lugging the briefcase with the dough. The cop chases him up the ladder and outside where DD is trapped..no where to go and no gun...the cop then plugs DD who then falls back into the sewer..in a death defying stunt. Another cop shows up and the shooter says lamenting..'he wouldn't stop'. He was a thousand years old for godsakes! Then he shoots him!!! Great fun, wish I had dvr'd it, worthy of the old MST3000!
