The concept of the movie originated from Frances Doel, after reading the 1973 novel Alp by William Hjortsberg, contacted him at his Montana home and she came up with the idea of a movie about two women and a robber on the run called Three's Company. Hjortsberg objected to the idea saying nobody would watch a movie like that. He made an agreement with Doel that he could write a moonshine car chase comedy and he wrote the script, all with assistance from Doel over the phone. See more »

The only point that seems worth adding here is that the writer William Hjortsberg later wrote the screenplay for Angel Heart filmed by Alan Parker in 1978 with Robert De Niro and Mickey Rourke, based on Hjortsberg's novel Falling Angel.
Aside from this and the aforementioned air boat race and gator-wrestling church it was pretty much business as usual for David Carradine and Kate Jackson at the time.
I enjoyed it when it first came out, when there seemed to be car chase movies every week at the local flea pit (recently I was surprised to see just how few Carradine actually appeared in!)
