Released in 1971 this is a cult classic car chase movie. This 2 Disc Collectors’ Edition includes both the original US and UK Theatrical Versions.
Barry Newman stars as Kowalski, the last American hero, who sets out to prove that he can drive from Denver to San Francisco in just fifteen hours. Along the way, he meets an old prospector, a nude woman on a motorcycle, and a blind D.J. who “sees” danger ahead in this super-charged, action-packed adventure!
Charlotte Rampling plays a hitchhiker whom Kowalski picks up en route. Her allegorical scenes were deleted in the US version. The scenes stayed for the UK release where the film was a critical and commercial success.
Primal Scream featured several bits of dialogue sampled directly from the movie on their 1997 ‘Vanishing Point’ album. The album was conceived as "an alternate soundtrack to the movie".
