Goofs

At the end of the film when the pledges arrive at Tubby's with their tires, the patrons cheer them on, one customer a short brunette with her hair pulled up in a very very short red dress is standing cheering as they go by, there is an edit to long shot for 2 seconds and then a tight shot on Simpson and a carhop for 3 seconds then a shot showing the same brunette in the red dress is now standing inside a convertible car kissing a guy and pulling him into the car with her.

good - funny - movie
3 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In reality it is a poor movie. The acting is Luke warm. B U T . . It is a great movie too! The plot is thin and the stories were cut short. Too bad the cutting room floor clips weren't available for the DVD.

The Cobra vs Project X race is incredible. Even though MSD electronic ignition and electric thin profile fans weren't available yet in '65. The Cobra still would have smoked the '57 and the T-Bucket. The hair-dos are more of the late '70s than the mid '60s.

I have it on VHS & DVD as well as a couple of original posters and it ranks as one of my favorite movies. The cars are great to see.
