Product Description

Amazon.ca

When car nut and aspiring B movie maverick H.B. "Toby" Halicki released his debut film, he gave top billing to his car, a yellow 1973 Ford Mustang named Eleanor. That's a good indication of Halicki's priorities in the original car-crunching, tire-squealing drive-in classic Gone in 60 Seconds. Halicki wrote, produced, starred, and did all of his own extraordinary stunt driving in the picture, the story of a career car thief who makes a deal to steal 48 cars for an overseas smuggler. OK, it's not Shakespeare. The plot is perfunctory at best, and Halicki's all thumbs when it comes to directing his wooden cast, but he gives a crash course in the mechanics of the car-theft biz and tops it off with one of the greatest car chases of all time: a 40-minute finale that roars through five Los Angeles-basin towns and destroys 93 cars in the process. It's a masterpiece of stunt driving, down-and-dirty photography, and sharp, furious cutting; the unsung hero of the picture is editor Warner Leighton, who paces the film perfectly and never lets it stall. Forget the messy Nicolas Cage in-name-only remake, this is outlaw auto cinema at its purest, and it's never looked better than in this newly restored edition with a revved-up sound design and an entirely new (rather generic) score.

The 25th Anniversary DVD also features an introduction by Denise Halicki (the director's widow); laid-back commentary by Leighton and cinematographer Jack Vacek that foregrounds Halicki's seat-of-the-pants filmmaking style; interviews with Parnelli Jones, J.C. Agajanian, and stunt driver Bobby Ore (all of whom appear in the film) and former Ford honcho Lee Iacocca; two cut scenes; unused driving footage; and 300 stills. --Sean Axmaker

1.0 out of 5 stars the movie is great, but the dvd STINKS Sept. 9 2002
Format:DVD
This is one of the all-time greatest car movies every made. the chase scenes are spectacular. Unlike some other reviewers, I found the plot plausible and intriguing.
HOWEVER, the dvd RUINED this movie. Although the bonus features are great, they cheaped out and didn't include the original score. Instead of the funky 70s music that totally fit the mood (stuff) that I could have whipped up on my home pc in about 10 minutes.
The missing songs and score totally ruined this otherwise terrific movie. You also get to see Halicki's widow insert herself all throughout the special features to the point of nausea. She even credits her own PARENTS with the making of the dvd! WTF???

5.0 out of 5 stars The original , and better Car Chase than Bullitt. Sept. 9 2014
By Big Bill TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The original version. The acting is poor , the sets are poor , the dialogue is poor but , this is where the franchise begins , and everything that follows owes allegiance to this one. We all know the story of a car thief engaged to steal a list of cars for an off shore customer , but here are some interesting facts. The cars required are listed on a chalkboard and to confuse things each car is given an alias ( female ) name , for instance Donna. This is why the Mustang is referred to as Elinor. Mr. Lee Iococca is listed in the credits , who was a major force at first Ford , and then later Chrysler. Perhaps this is why most of the cars in the film are Fords and Chryslers. There are some Cadillacs ( one gets burned , on purpose ) and some Caddy limos , but the action cars whether items to be stolen or police cars or accident victims are almost exclusively Fords and Chryslers. There is a Pantara ( Ford powered ) and a Manta in the mix as well.
After setting the scene for a bit the real action begins . After stealing the Mustang, Elinor # 1 , the owner runs an add saying it didn't have theft insurance , and they return it!! In the act of stealing Elinor # 2 he is seen and the chase is on. While the car chase in the movie called Bullitt may be more famous , this car chase makes Bullitt look like a walk in the park. In real life this would be very bad , and indeed some of the injuries generated by the 40 min. car chase are noted . After out running and out smarting the police
our (anti) hero limps into a car wash and manages to steal by slight of hand what is in essence Elinor # 3.
A " B" movie all the way , that is good fun from the get go. Whenever I re-watch it I have to view it twice , to get everything out it.
Some reviews caution about quality , but quality wasn't that good originally.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Enjoyable Nov. 2 2005
Format:DVD
I enjoyed the remake of this movie, its not all that bad. But when I compare it to this original, it has nothing on it. Ignoring the fact this movie was made on a shoestring budget and by a guy who ran a junkyard, it was excellent and entertaining. But the fact that it was made on a shoestring budget and by a guy who ran a junkyard makes it to me, all the much more amazing. This movie is inspiration for aspiring indie film makers everywhere, and i beleive it fits well with other movies like mad max and vanishing point to name a couple. I am forever glad to have this movie in my collection as well. I was however disappointed to learn that the original ST to the movie was removed on the dvd, however i never actually heard it - but i'm always disappointed when people try to 'improve' a movie like this to fit in better with the present. It just takes away from the feel. Anyways while watching this, the acting in it has never occured to me as being bad. I don't know, it might just be bad. Anyways I must only recommend this movie to the people who like the old school movies in which the car is the star. Mad max, vanishing point, smokey and bandit, ect. fans and anyone who enjoy indie films of ole should not be disappointed.

Okay all of you people who say "I can make a movie better than that!" here's an example of someone with no film making experiance tries to make a movie.Don't give me that "What about Quentin Tarrantino." stuff.That's one out of a million.But you've gotta hand it to H.B. "Toby" Halicki,he had a good concept for an action movie:A car thief has to steal 50 cars without getting caught.However,Toby's inexperiance shows.Though he had some good ideas about sub-plot(Talking about settling down with his girlfriend),he didn't have the experiance to focus the story enough.The film fluxuates in between action,comedy,and documentery(Some of the scenes that explain the art of auto theft were actually real methods at the time).Still,in the end,the film's climatic car chase with "Elenor",is the only reason worth giving the film a look.It is,as my review title suggests,like watching "World's Scariest Police Chases".One of the DVD's perks is the audio commentary by the lead cameraman and the editor of the film who provide some interesting insights into the movie(It also helps to pass the first 50 some-odd minutes untill the big chase).

4.0 out of 5 stars Gone in 60 Seconds X2,Coments on the old and new. March 8 2003
Format:DVD
When Gone in 60 seconds was originaly filmed in '74 I was not quite in kindergarten therefore had no knowlage of this movie.I became aware of it while my wife and I were perusing the shelves of the local Blockbuster and saw it next to the Nicolas Cage version.I had to see it (and no ,they would not sell it to me as a pvd ). As car movies go I liked it for the cars. I was less impressed with the originals story line and acting ability of the cast. Then again I wasn' there for the dialouge anyway. I was there for Elinore.(I'm a hard core Ford fanatic)As far as the driving ability displayed here I'd have to say that it is right in there with the other great car wreck movies such as Vanishing Point 1970 version(the newer version of Vanishing Point with B.H.90210's Jason Priestly is a waste of time and film,don't bother watching it), Blues Brothers 1 and 2,Smokey and the Bandit and Gone in 60 seconds with Nicolas Cage. When I was younger than I am now I bent the ocasional rule about only taking MY car out of the driveway and therefore identify with Cages role as Memphis Raines. I was in the life and got out with my a** intact. I did not like the premise of boosting cars shearly for profit.I was there for the car and never let harm come to any,and all were recoverd no worse for the wear. The newer version is a haunting memory for me and my youthful stupidity. The older one was just plain fun with an adreniline rush delivered mainline for a car crazy wrench turner and former street racer.BUY BOTH GONE IN 60 SECONDS original and remake period .You WILL love these movies. (Side note:Nicolas cage did all of his own stunt driving to include driving in reverse gear through a warehouse and on to the surface street in front of a semi wrecker.)

C'est la même histoire que la version avec Nicolas Cage, mais avec des autos des années 70. Les cascades sont nombreuses et bien réelles. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars The end all and be all of car chase movies
Gone does not pretend to be anything other than a car chase movie. The plot, such as it is, is purely a set-up for the 40-minute sequence that destroys (at least) 93 cars. Read more
