About Vanishing Point:
Barry Newman stars as Kowalski, the last American hero, who sets out to prove that he can drive from Denver to San Francisco in just fifteen hours. Along the way, he meets an old prospector, a nude woman on a motorcycle, and a blind D.J. who “sees” danger ahead in this super-charged, action-packed adventure!
Released in 1971 this is a cult classic car chase movie. This 2 Disc Collectors’ Edition includes both the original US and UK Theatrical Versions.
Charlotte Rampling plays a hitchhiker whom Kowalski picks up en route. Her scenes were deleted in the US version as apparently 20th Century Fox thought American audiences wouldn't understand the allegorical scene. Fox’s lack of faith in the film meant that it was only released in neighbourhood theatres and soon disappeared. The scenes stayed for the UK release where the film was a critical and commercial success.
The film had eight 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T's to use during filming. Only one was left at the end. Newman drove one car equipped with three cameras off the road to avoid a head-on collision when a "civilian" driver ignored road blocks during filming.
