My favourite Donald Sutherland film. Demolition derby footage from opening sequence 02:45-04:10. No film characters are directly involved in this footage, apart from some cabin shots of Donald driving with these as a backdrop, so this
CougarTim wrote I think we've seen some of this footage before in other movies

may well be true, so have not created pages apart from the Dodge Power breakdown truck. Comments/IDs as supplied before page clean-up.

:king: It's a great film, very funny, chaotic, and well recommended so deserved a good attempt.

Thanks to everyone who helped (particularly with my technical problems).

Planes for impdb:

Consolidated PBY Catalina - http://www.answers.com/topic/consolidated-pby-catalina . The gang's attempts to get a derelict one flying again are a main part of the storyline - lots of footage inside and out with these just a selection (titles include the timing). A plane may have been harmed during the making of this film.

A second example in a US Navy hangar (or could actually be the first one cleaned up if the producers cheated??)

I love the Catalina. It's such an ungainly looking beast.

About archived comments: I think that the ratio is still not exactly right. But I come a little late...

Steelyard Blues is supposed to have a good soundtrack.

It does - have posted the youtube link to the main theme above. The CD is unobtainable now without paying huge amounts, so explore other routes .... ;)

1st comment above for opening demolition derby sequence, CougarTim wrote "I think we've seen some of this footage before in other movies" - see main page comment pictures from ep1.21 of Rockford Files - looks like same track, but another event/meeting as car numbers don't obviously match.

Pontiac Ambulance and Studebaker turn up again five months later in Steel Arena.
