These three films are highly entertaining, beautifully shot, acted and directed:

Writer: Garry Michael White
Stars: Gene Hackman, Al Pacino and Dorothy Tristan
Vanishing Point (1971)
Kowalski works for a car delivery service. He takes delivery of a 1970 Dodge Challenger to take from Colorado to San Francisco, California. Shortly after pickup, he takes a bet to get the car there in less than 15 hours.
Director: Richard C. Sarafian
Writers: Malcolm Hart (story), Guillermo Cabrera Infante (screenplay)

Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (1974)
With the help of an irreverent young sidekick, a bank robber gets his old gang back together to organize a daring new heist.
Director: Michael Cimino

Thunderbolt and Lightfoot is my favourite of the three and I've included the full recording of 'Where Do I Go from Here' by Paul Williams.
