...anyone else here like this classic flick? I'm a big car chase fan, and this is one of my fave movies ever. I'm excited because I just learned it is coming to DVD in June finally!! Widescreen and with extras like commentary and more!

Why will this release kick ass? Because Anchor Bay is putting it out, and they always put out quality product. Great company those people have there.

DMCL definitely has something of a cult audience, kind of like The Warriors. It's considered the ultimate car chase flick, and not even so because there are so many non-stop chases, there are plenty of movies with more chases and wilder chases, it's the great script, tight direction, and cool acting that makes this a great flick.

I actually prefer the sequel, Grand Theft Auto.

I saw both of those when I was a kid. I couldn't get over Opie/Richie C. as the wild guy.

Yeah man, Eat My Dust and Grand Theft Auto! Both Corman films, I like "Dust" but also prefer "Grand Theft Auto" especially for broadcaster Don Steele, who was also in DeathRace 2000, Rock and Roll High School and KISS Meets The Phantom!

One tip for car chase fans - a little-known flick called
"Smokey Bites The Dust" came out in '81 (Jimmy McNichol!) and uses a lot of footage from "Grand Theft," but the original footage is unbelievable, including a '55 Chevy jumping from one roof to the next, crashing through the roof it lands on, landing in the middle of an auto dealer, and crashing through the glass driving off! All real, no computer FX!

Cool Fox!

I'll share something I noticed about the flick. You know how in the beginning they show scenes from the rest of the film? There's one scene not in the film, it's shadowy figures fighting in a hallway, remember that at the start? My guess is that it is a cut scene, maybe after David beat those guys up in the classroom the fight continued in the hallway. And it looks like Mark may be fighting alongside him! Wish that scene was in the film!
