1977, 113 min, USA, Dir: Earl Bellamy

Joe Don Baker is the man the auto insurance companies turn to when a rash of car thefts baffle police. As no-nonsense private eye Pete Novick, he and rookie cop Nifty Nolan (a pre-“Cagney and Lacey” Tyne Daly) burn rubber in pursuit of elusive wheel man the Road Runner; needless to say, a lot of cars get banged up along the way. With Robert Loggia and Richard Jaeckel.
