“Told to drive a Dodge Challenger from Denver to San Francisco, Newman -- for no apparent reason -- decides to do it in 15 hours. Naturally the cops soon in hot persuit, but Barry gets some help from blind d.j. Super Soul (Little). Existential chase thriller was a big drive-in hit, and remains a cult favorite. Exceptional rock score.” – Leonard Maltin.
“The chase looks like simple math—fast cars plus faster car, multiplied by helicopter, equals an exciting chase. But to make this exchange between the machines look so seamless required experience and knowledge of how to photograph and stage that action.” – Scott McGee, Danger on the Silver Screen
