Trivia

This was the very last film distributed by Allied Artists Corporation (early in its life, Allied Artists was known as Monogram Pictures, which was responsible for all the "Bowery Boys" movies). Citing extreme financial difficulties, Allied Artists filed for Chapter 11 in late 1978, and the following year their entire backlog (including the Monogram films) was purchased by Lorimar/Telepictures Corporation. When Lorimar itself was purchased by Time Warner, Inc. a decade later, Warner Bros. became the owner of the Allied Artists/Monogram backlog (on some TV prints of the "Bowery Boys" features, the "WB Shield" logo precedes the opening credits).

Goofs

When Catherine initially stabs Mathew, she stabs him on his left side, the blade is horizontal. After the cut, the blade is vertical sticking out of the center of Mathew's upper back. See more »

28 December 2012 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

The fact that this "tuchia" gets 6 stars on the IMDb scale and Two Lane Blacktop rates only 7.2 is proof how meaningless these aggregate scores are. I do sometimes wonder how much is lost in the pan-and-scan releases that these B movies get but I don't think anything could raise this film above bad and pretentious. Whether this is the fault of the producers or the director is usually a tale untold. My guess is that the producers wanted Agutter naked for half the film (bad) and that Hellman thought it would be cool to have Peckinpah mumble a few lines (pretentious). One interesting note is that this is the only screen credit for Jerry Harvey, the ill-fated programming genius behind Z channel in LA during the 1980's.
