Trivia

Future long-serving EastEnders (1985) cast-member June Brown (Dot Cotton/Branning) can be seen in the non-speaking role of the grieving Mrs Pettibone at her daughter's funeral service. See more »

Goofs

One of the chase scenes where the bikes are followed around a road, pre 1959 road markings are seen. While it is possible older style UK road markings were still in existence in 1972, they would not have been on main roads. This probably confirms that the road used was a test track for motor vehicles rather than national highways. See more »

maturing like an old wine
5 November 2000 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

For years after its release, this movie was considered as juvenile, sensationalist trash. It was also 'allegedly' one of the reasons the veteran actor George Sanders made the ultimate career move - after his involvement with the film. However with today's young directors pre-occupied with concrete, drugs and misery, this old film now looks quite stylish and appears to be maturing like a cheerful old wine.
