Trivia: Gone in Sixty Seconds (1974)
  • Blooper: At one point in the chase, the police crash into a garbage truck, causing it to tip over onto a car. In that scene, you can see the wires used to pull it over.
    • It appears they they tried to hide this by putting power lines in the background.
  • Fatal Method Acting: A sequel to the film was in the works, up until H.B. Halicki was crushed to death by a telephone pole in the middle of filming it.
  • Life Imitates Art: 1-Baker-11 has a camera mounted on the dash, presumably to record the car chase for police files. Police cars would not be equipped with cameras for another decade and a half.
  • No Budget
  • The 1973 Cadillac Fleetwood 60 Hallicki is driving in the beginning and after arriving at the airport was borrowed from a friend. After driving it at 100 MPH for several stretches, the lifters were loose and hammering. The owner was not happy (most likely the lifters weren't tightened properly to begin with).
