Revealing mistakes: The film is supposed to take place in Texas. When the trio are approaching the Courthouse for surrender, there is a long shot taken of the crowd awaiting on the Courthouse steps. The California flag is clearly seen flying on the flagpole revealing that filming took place in California instead of Texas.See more »

Drive-in co-feature only for indiscriminate action fans..., 5 November 2015
Author: moonspinner55 from las vegas, nv

Pretty-boy hitchhiker and a small town waitress witness a shooting between the redneck sheriff and his deputy; they take it on the lam, with the crooked law in hot pursuit. Everything in "Moving Violation" seems misplaced: the actors, the milieu, the music. Despite a screenplay by David Osterhout and the estimable William Norton--plus a potentially strong cast of actors including sexy Kay Lenz and Eddie Albert as a lawyer--this shoestring production from Roger and Julie Corman gets off on the wrong foot and never finds its balance. Leading man Stephen McHattie blithely zips through the whole abysmal shebang on cruise-control, emitting no discernible sparks. * from ****
