If you happen to be in the NYC area this Tuesday night Trash Palace presents a video screening of the classic car chase smash-em-up Gone in 60 Seconds (1974)
And this version has the original music score that was written for the film. Director / star H. B. Halicki was sadly killed trying to shoot a stunt for the sequel which was never finished as far as I know. When his wife later released this on DVD she scrapped the original score in place of a cheezy new electronic one that sounded like it was trying to capitalize on the "Fast and Furious" type of movies. In short - it sucked! If you are into massive car carnage do not miss it! At the time of the original release the amount of destruction was used as a selling point. This was enough for me to convince my Mom to take me to see it in 1974 (I was 9!). Before the movie a few classic car chase movie trailers will be shown. VRRRRROOOOOOM!!
This Tuesday at Otto's Shrunken Head in NYC (538 E. 14th street (A & B)).
Presented by Trash Palace and Cine Meccanica!
