Storyline

Larry Rayder is an aspiring NASCAR driver, Deke Sommers his mechanic. As they feel they collectively are the best, the only thing that is holding them back is money to build the best vehicle possible. As such, they decide to rob a supermarket's office of the money in its safe to pursue their dream. On the most part, their robbery is successful, although their plan breaks down in its end phase, which doesn't allow them as much getaway time as they wanted. Another problem they face is an unexpected third person in their getaway, Larry's one night stand Mary Coombs, who doesn't like the fact that Larry ran off on her, although she eventually also says that she doesn't want any of the money. With a police scanner and two-way radio in their souped up Chevy Impala, they try to outrun the police, who have an identification of their vehicle, and a general description of the three. The police pursuit is led by the tenacious Sheriff Everett Franklin, who knows he and his team can catch them, ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

The famous getaway car featured in the film is a 1969 Dodge Charger R/T with a 440 cubic inch V-8 engine. For musclecar buffs, the color of the Charger is "Limelight" yellow (actually, a fluorescent yellow-green). The black stripe on the side of the car is NOT a "factory" racing stripe (rather one painted on by the crew), and the wheels are classic "American Racing" brand wheels. See more »

Goofs

In almost all close-up shots of an actor wearing (sun)glasses, the crew and/or camera rigs are visible in the reflections. See more »

Quotes

Larry Rayder: Hey, Deke, it turns out Dingleberry here's a joke after all.
Mary Coombs: [quoting book] "The murderer, is not unaccountable for his own murder. And the robbed should not be blameless for being robbed. For it is the cornerstone of the temple, that is no higher than the lowest stone in its foundation."
Larry Rayder: Now, don't start speaking in puns to me woman.
Mary Coombs: That is from a book, bozo! And, if you'd read once in a while, perhaps you'd know what I'm talking about!
Larry Rayder: Oh, books, Europe, Lear Jets, Sam Baker, shoplifting... ...

Cult 70's car chase flick packs a wallop!
25 February 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Awesome 70's car chase flick has Fonda and Rourke holding a supermarket manager's wife and kid hostage, stealing his money and making a clean getaway. They didn't expect Mary (George) to tag along after Fonda sleeps and ditches her. Vic Morrow plays the officer in charge trying to catch the trio. So many great car chase sequences and stunts; it's such a blast to watch. All three leads are great but Rourke is especially good as the calm, quiet, and somewhat creepy partner-in-crime. One of the unsung films of the 70's and ranks among the best car chase films of all time along with 'Bullitt', 'French Connection', 'The Driver', and 'Midnight Run.'

***1/2 out of ****
