Vanishing Point (1971, dir: by Richard C. Sarafian) is THE ultimate car chase movie, and it’s not really about cars. Barry Newman stars as Kowalski, who works for a car delivery service and is to deliver a 1970 Dodge Challenger in San Fransisco, California. He takes a bet to deliver the car in San.Fran. in less than 15 hours (from Colorado) – and that’s where the fun begins.
I’m not going to spoil the fun if you haven’t seen it, so here’s the trailer and a couple of pictures from the movie. There’s a blind DJ/ghost voice, gay hitchikers, a naked woman riding a bike (epic!) and lots of excellent car chase scenes.
