McQ Car Chase (1974)
Car chase scene from the 1974 film MCQ, featuring the first air cannon rollover.
Best and possibly most fabulous car crash ever
In BUtterfield 8, when Elizabeth Taylor's Sunbeam Alpine sprints across the Tappan Zee Bridge, through a roadblock, and off a cliff, it results in a very short, very weird, completely mesmerizing crash. Personally, I think it's better and gayer (i.e. more fabulous) than the one in Mahogany. And you can tell Miss Ross I said so. Bonus: if you loved the vocal effects worked on Taylor's confession in Suddenly Last Summer, you'll probably enjoy these, too.
CAR CHASE from "Brannigan" - '75
I am informed the stunt driver who did the LEAP was Peter Brayham - one of British TV and movies' top stuntmen/co-ordinators of the Sixties. Joe Wadham MIGHT have been involved in the street work - he worked on "Robbery" and many other contemporary British movies.

There's no pattern to the killings and police are confused and scared. Only after gunshots splatter his partner across a back alley and Detective Lon McQ himself narrowly escapes death does the bloody rampage make sense. Now McQ knows whom to go after. John Wayne thunderously enforces the law in a high-velocity thriller that's like a big-city revenge Western on wheels. Directed by action master John Sturges (The Great Escape, The Magnificent Seven) Starring John Wayne, Clu Gulager, Diana Muldaur
