Gone In 60 Seconds (1974)

A film so influential, it gave us the photo which graces the top of this blog.

H.B. Halicki was a one-man wrecking crew, putting out a series of wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am action pics while operating as a director, writer, stunt driver, and (fairly bad) actor.

The best of them was this metal-shreddin’ ode to the rebel spirit, which featured 127 cars being destroyed or damaged, most of them during the greatest 40-minute chase scene ever committed to celluloid.

They didn’t need no stinkin’ permits, brakes, or seat belts back then, just a heavy foot on the gas pedal and a dream.

‘Merica!
