Noël Coward was not in good health, and had a hard time learning lines for the movie, so his longtime companion and partner Graham Payn had a cameo role as Bridger's assistant, so he could be on hand to help with any problems. See more »

This car belongs to the Pakistani ambassador!
Typical, isn't it? I've been out of jail five minutes, and already I'm in a hot car.
Charlie, I just wanted you to come out in style, baby.

When the first E-Type is crushed on the mountain road, Charlie says, "You just cost him his no claims bonus." For the American release this was dubbed to, "...his insurance bonus." See more »
This thing starts moving and doesn't let go of you until the end, at which point you wish you were still on the ride going. We were surprised that we'd never herd of this before, especially since so many scenes are in video games these days (and times past).
This isn't one of those movies you spend your time thinking about, just sit down, watch, and let the movie unfold before you. If you're looking for good entertainment, this is it. If you are looking for meaning and some sort of significance, look elsewhere.
Good fast fun! 8/10
