Storyline

The California Kid, A sadistic small-town sheriff has a habit of deliberately forcing speeders to their deaths on the mountain roads leading into town. The brother of one of the victims rolls into town in his hot rod to investigate his brother’s death.

Second Only To “Bullitt”

The California Kid, I was about thirteen when this movie came out on television. It is far superior in action than most movies since. Martin Sheen is excellent, and though Nick Nolte has a small part, he too provides excellent support. Vic Morrow as the villain is superb.

When Sheen “tests the water” in his ’34 Ford (COOL) along the mountainous highway it is spectacular!

The ending is grand.

I’m disappointed in the low vote this received. I figure the younger generations have more interest in much of the junk that is coming out these days.

Good taste eludes the masses!

The car is the real star of this movie.

Martin Sheen, Michelle Phillips, Stuart Margolin and the late Vic Morrow are the human stars of this movie about a young man looking for answers about his brother’s death. Mr. Sheen, Mr. Margolin and Mr. Morrow all turn in first rate performances in their respective roles; Ms. Phillips has the slightly less than enviable task of trying to spice up a made-for-TV movie (twenty-five years ago), by supplying the “sex interest” in an otherwise sexless film. The real star, however, is the “California Kid”; a 1934 Ford coupe, borrowed from “Jake” Jacobs, put before a camera and given a workout that’ll leave the viewer panting, gasping and holding the edge of the seat with breathless anticipation.

The action scenes are spectacular, (although some of the dialog is a bit lame) making for a fine evening’s diversion. This is how all “car movies” should be made.

Try to catch this one on the late movie channel; it’s well worth the missed sleep.
