Ron Howard initially turned this part down when he was offered it. He only decided to do it because he was offered a chance to direct another car-chase film for the so-called "Roger Corman Unit" if it was successful. That film would eventually evolve into Grand Theft Auto (1977). See more »

Filmed in and around Piru, California. Every time I watch it, I tell my wife, "Look! There's the Fillmore bridge!" (the long bridge) Or, "I've been down that road" etc. Nice to see all my old stomping grounds. I'm from Thousand Oaks, so Piru is pretty close. At any rate, anyone catch the blooper where Ron Howard is in the barn with the car? He drives out the back wall, but before he reaches it, the made-to-breakaway wall falls before he touches it. It is a nice, clean movie and enjoyable to watch time and time again. Worth watching, folks. An early car chase and wreck 'em up movie. A ground breaker. Some of it even appears to have been filmed in or around Thousand Oaks.
