Gone in 60 Seconds (1974)

Tuesday, May 31th 9pm

Otto’s Shrunken Head

538 E. 14th street (A & B)

Let the wrecking begin

This week’s  screening copy of the film, complete with the  hard to find original music score, made possible by the always fantastic TRASH PALACE!

Maindrian Pace: Hey, Stanley, what’s your new girlfriend’s name?
Stanley Chase: Jill, why?
Maindrian Pace: I’m going to name this car after her, ’cause she’s a wreck too.

Insurance investigator Maindrian Pace and his team lead double-lives as unstoppable car thieves. When a South American drug lord pays Pace to steal 48 cars for him, all but one, a 1973 Ford Mustang, are in the bag.

Long Beach Female Dispatcher: [over radio] 1-Baker-11, 10-4. Switch to Open Channel 3. All units, stand-by, 1-Baker-11 is in pursuit. A ’73 Ford Mustang, license in the 6-column – 614 Henry Sam Ocean, westbound Ocean Boulevard, against traffic.

As Pace prepares to rip-off the fastback, codenamed “Eleanor”, in Long Beach, he is unaware that his boss has tipped off the police after a business dispute.

 I should have read my horoscope this morning.

Detectives are waiting and pursue Pace through five cities as he desperately tries to get away. Written by Paul Morris, IMDB

Pumpkin, I’m tired. I’m not Superman

H.B. Halicki, the director/writer/star of Gone in 60 Seconds was killed in 1989 during a water tower stunt while filming this film’s sequel, Gone in 60 Seconds 2: Deadline Auto Theft . When his wife later released the film on DVD in 1999, she scrapped the original score in place of a cheesy new electronic one that sounded like it was trying to capitalize on the “Fast and Furious” type of movies. In short – it sucked! – Trash Palace

The six original songs written for the film by Philip Kachaturian, and featured only in pre-1999 releases of the film are:

Gone in 60 Seconds

Lois Lane Blues

Hope the Man Doesn’t Catch Me

Big Town, Big City

Chariot Ride

Boob Tube Blues
