PRIVATE ROAD: NO TRESPASSING was an interesting production in which race car driver Brad Carlton (played with intensity by Greg Evigan) winds up in Santa Barbara, California one night after quitting his job of test-driving a cheaply rebuilt stock car. While riding his motorcycle, he's run off the road by high-strung heiress Helen Milshaw (Mitzi Kapture and yes, that's her real name) and is later taken to the mountainous estate of her father, industrialist/automobile manufacturer Sam Milshaw (George Kennedy). To make a long story short, Sam's trying to land a lucrative contract with the United States Army for the creation of specially-made dune buggies designed for search and destroy missions; these dune buggies are to be armed with formidable 500-round machine guns and missiles that can be used in land warfare against enemy tanks. With Brad's mechanical expertist, Sam Milshaw succeeds in convincing Army officers that the fast-attack all-terrain vehicles are indeed suitable. In the meanwhile, Brad Carlton romances Helen Milshaw---who happens to be engaged to conniving cad Ken Burgess (Brian Patrick Clark). and ol' Ken would like Brad out of the picture, permanently. After Brad convinces Helen that she's better than she thinks she is, he takes off in his two-wheeler and she chases after him in her sports car. And the movie ends with the implication that she will catch up with him and make him hers. There you go. Raphael Nussbaum (who was born and raised in Germany), was all over this flick. Besides having served as director, he also wrote the story and screenplay. Some of the photography was by Henning Schellerup, who lensed many a Sunn Classics movie. Nussbaum also directed THE INVISIBLE TERROR (1963), a German science fiction movie that is awaiting rediscovery. The dune buggy scenes were shot in Mexico. I saw this movie on Cinemax in the late 1980s/early 1990s, and even got it on VHS videotape. It is awaiting rediscovery as well. It ought to be on DVD. Just my humble opinion.
