Joe Don Baker,
A tough, slobby, honest cop tries to simultaneously take down heroin dealers and a corrupt businessman who murdered a burglar, even if it costs him his life. This obscure film became infamous after Mystery Science Theater 3000 (1988) riffed on it.
After a wave of unsolved car thefts, an insurance company calls in private investigator Pete Nobeck to solve the case. While the chief of police isn't thrilled about having an outsider come and show up his men, one of the officers is a former girlfriend of Nobeck's who's more than willing to help him out in any way she can. After a long and convoluted investigation with false leads, psychics and the mafia, Nobeck at last unravels the identity of the thief.Written by

The boom microphone dips into the frame when Novick and Loomis walk through the door to enter Spillano's house. It enters the frame again when Novick knocks Loomis to the floor in Spillano's office study. See more »
Excellent Movie please release on DVD pr BLU RAY and CD
This is my all time favorite car chase movie. Not only does it do the usual and make the car thief look more impressive than the cops, but it has a great twist in the tail, stars some of the best actors from the 60s and 70s and has some great cars and technology at the time that led the way for future cars (the card of today) to follow.
Dianne Marchall does beautiful singing for the music titles and the guitar music throughout the movie is 2nd to none for this genre of movie.
Being an actor myself ( also you can find me on the IMDb.com Richard Andrew Evans ) I would love to appear in a remake of Speed Trap and hopefully get to drive some of those old cars :) TOP TOP MOVIE - Why is it not on DVD? why is the "entire movie soundtrack" not available on CD? It is impossible these days to find the "5 minutes 45RPM" Vinyl that was released as the movie soundtrack.
Splendid movie, lets all keep our fingers crossed this eventually surfaces on the shelves for us to buy, watch, enjoy and listen to one more time with the high quality of reproduction we have today.
10 out of 10 - BRILLIANT ! :) Story, acting, movie, the LOT - GET IT IF YOU CAN.
