Did You Know?


The phenomenal box office success of Gone in 60 Seconds (1974) allowed director/star H.B. Halicki to buy all of the property, vehicles and memorabilia seen in the film (as owned by character Harlan Hollis). Halicki owned the world's largest toy and automobile collection, which continues to sit as-is today following his death in 1989. See more »


When Harlan drives up onto the sidewalk in the Corvette, the patrol car behind him is clearly pulling away from being stopped alongside the parking spaces, rather than coming from the lane at speed. Also, traffic can be seen moving freely in the opposite direction in the background, when the whole road is supposed to be blocked by police cars and the car transporter. See more »

Harlan Hollis: Hiya, Hoyt.
Hoyt: Oh, hi, Harlan. HARLAN? Sonova gun, man! I heard you were dead!
Harlan Hollis: They can't kill me!

More of a follow-up than a sequel, but still fun.
28 January 1999 | by (Suffolk, Virginia) – See all my reviews

H.B. Halicki, who thrilled many with some of the most exciting car chases in GONE IN 60 SECONDS, had this follow-up a few years later called THE JUNKMAN. This time, it's more amusing and hilarious than the previous film, and you will expect both more and the same with the almost nonstop action. In Halicki's second effort, there are big explosions, gunslinging, and a femme fatale out to catch Harlan B. Hollis' butt (he played the role). Don't be perturbed, though. It isn't THE original movie, but given the notorious stuntwork and a sense of humor, it still has its credentials. You'll be amazed with the low-flying aircraft, plus a never-before-seen idea of autos driving over front hoods! As films like this go, it doesn't hang onto any new innovations, and the crashes are nothing to get nutty about. Sometimes, cars crash directly on purpose, which is lame. Halicki's talent in making movies shouldn't be denied, as logos of GONE IN 60 SECONDS appear almost every time. That includes a familiar prop, the beaten-up yellow '73 Mustang he named "Eleanor"! This one's different, but it won't leave you disappointed. If nobody can agree with the professional movie critics on THE JUNKMAN, who will?
