    Dirty Mary and Crazy Larry is one of my all time favorite car chase flicks.

    Peter Fonda did several "anti hero" films around that time including Easy Rider.

    Other good chase films:

    Convoy

    Bullitt

    Gone in 60 Seconds (1974 remade in 2000)

    Bonnie & Clyde (Lots of old time car chases)

    Blues Brothers

    Cannonball

    Cannonball Run

    Corvette Summer

    Duel (1971) A car vs semi truck written by Stephen King Starring Dennis Weaver

    Mad Max (1979)

    Gumball Rally (1976)

    Hell on Wheels (1967)

    Maximum Overdrive

    Moonrunners (1975)

    Mother, Jugs, & Speed (1976)

    Ronin (1998)

    Smokey and the Bandit (1977)

    ccbig, looks like we have the same taste in movies, have seen most of what you said here and agree. I didn't realize it but Mary and Larry had a bigger box office in numbers than did Easy Rider according to Fonda.

    Over the Edge was the first movie to show what abandonement of any family values would result in -turned out to be pretty prophetic.

    Eraserhead.

    One of the most disturbing movies that I've seen. Yet, the entire film has virtually zero dialogue, and just shows a husband and wife walking over to their severely disabled child and sighing.

    It has to be seen to be grasped.

    I have seen Over the Edge, but not Eraserhead, Ban, is this the movie? If so, some rather disturbing scenes and rather mesmorizing.
