The Fast and The Furious 1954

The other night, I was scrolling on my TV, and I saw this The Fast and the Furious on TCM (Turner Classic Movies).

It’s the classic version of The Fast and the Furious. It stars John Ireland, Dorothy Malone, and Bruce Carlisle, in black and white. Bruce Carlisle died in 1980 at the age of 58. Sorry no pictures.

The Budget of the movie was $66,000, and the Gross sales were $250,000. They had to use stock videos from other videos to make it better.

In 2001, version of the Fast and the Furious, the movie studio got the title rights, not the story rights. It’s about racing, but the 2001 version was so much better than the 1954 version. 

The original title would have been Crash Out, a significant title changes help.

The car that was used was the Jaguar XK120.
