Maindrian Pace (H.B. Halicki) is a master car thief who heads an elaborate organization of professionals. Using an insurance investigation company as a front, Pace and his associates buy junked cars from accident scenes, steal new autos of the same model and color, then switch the serial numbers for resale. It's a lucrative business, but when some shady characters offer them 400,000 dollars to deliver 50 specific luxury vehicles, the challenge is too much to pass up. The burglars put on disguises and waste no time in lifting limousines, official racecars, and Rolls-Royces (even stopping by a television studio to steal actor Lyle Waggoner's convertible). When Pace discovers that a recently stolen Cadillac has a million dollars worth of heroin in the trunk, he destroys the car and the drugs, which infuriates his adversarial partner, Eugene (Jerry Daugirda). Just as Pace is stealing a bright yellow Mustang (code-named Eleanor), the Los Angeles police department gives chase, tipped off by Eugene's anonymous call. This leads to the meat of the film, a wild 40-minute pursuit which takes Pace and the police through five cities and leads to the destruction of 93 cars. Gone in 60 Seconds was a big hit for first time director/writer/producer/star H.B. Halicki, and inspired a big-budget remake in 2000.

Gone in 60 Seconds is the product of Toby Halici. He was a car nut who got wealthy and decided to make his own car chase movie, without hollywood's involvement. Its story focuses on a band of car thieves who are filling a big order. The main character ends up in the last car, spotted by the cops. From there, the last 40 minutes are totally realistic crashing and chasing on real streets for the climax of the film. The acting and storyline of the film are weak, and the whole movie feels a bit amateur. But for what is basically a homemade movie, it is surprisingly decent, and the chase beats anything from a script and a digital lab. To give you an idea of how much more realistic this chase is than most others: There was only ONE copy of the getaway car used in filming. Whenever it got damaged, it STAYED damaged, whether the collision was intentional or not. Halici wrote, produced, directed, starred, and even stunt-drove the film himself. The film was given a remake with more money and less realism in 2000.

Although the acting throughout the movie is something less than epic, this original version of Gone In 60 Seconds contains real automobiles involved in real mass destruction. There are no fake computer simulated scenes anywhere within this movie. Just real cars smashing other real cars leading to a 40 minute long and very realistic chase scene in which more cars are destroyed than one could ever imagine. This is the real film that inspired the second version of Gone In 60 Seconds which is just a copycat re-run of one of the greatest films ever produced.

This movie is a remastered copy of the original 1974 version and much better than the new cage/jolie version but the 1974 movie with the original music can not be beat. Mr. Halicki did a great job on a low budget. If you like the cars this is the movie to see.
