British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's son went missing while rallying through the Sahara around this time, which gave this movie some much needed publicity. See more »
Twice in the opening sequence, Dale (Brooke Shields) slides off the race course on a corner, and the wide view shows her race car hitting a hay bale barricade, but both times in a close-up shot inserted between the long views, her car hits a barricade made of tires. See more »
Excellent Movie-One of my mom's all time favorites
This is an awesome movie. I watched with my mom 1-2 times a month for over a decade. Then her VHS copy became worn out. I would love to find a copy on DVD for her and a 2nd one for me. I can't say enough good things about this movie. It is an action-packed, love story that appeals to people from a large range of demographics, from the teenage adventurer to the passionate housewife to the race fans and everyone in between. Everyone should find something intriguing about this movie. Lets get real. This is a love story wrapped around a car race across a desert. Shields' character pushes the envelope by challenging equality barriers for women in this region. This is truly an all-around fabulous movie.
