A cop in a 1971 Pontiac LeMans chases a crook on an elevated subway train. Throw in a bunch of real pedestrians & drivers who didn't know that a movie was being filmed & you have instant car chase gold. Unbelievably, the LeMans going 90 MPH for 26 blocks on the streets of Brooklyn wasn't choreographed & there were no permits from NYC.
A cameraman said, "It was a terrible thing, it was dangerous, it was life-threatening."
