I know i makes me old, but I far prefer chases like this t what we see today. No special effects of flying cars. Keep us in the action and make us feel it. This isn't a great movie, but this is maybe the best car chase ever. Certainly one of the top handful.

Bill Hickman driving the bad guy's car, just as he did in BULLITT. He also did the more dangerous driving for Gene Hackman in THE FRENCH CONNECTION.

And Roy Scheider, one of my favorite tough guys of all time. Damn it, I just said this isn;t a great film, but I'm going to have to see if it's on Netflix.

This is great, and I remember it being the best part of the movie. It's also the first time I saw Ed O'Neil (Al Bundy) in a movie. Thanks for the memory.

I remember being shocked he could play anything else
Scheider was a great actor, wasn't he.
