Naked Prey / Red Line 7000 (Both 1965) UK Quad Poster
Cheap local release double bill poster, doing neither film much justice. Cornel Wilde's savage chase thriller is mostly wordless, and all the more powerful for it. Directed by him as well, he was as much a Hollywood maverick as Cassavetes, but more cinematically rather than dialogue inclined. The Naked Prey was probably his finest example of that.
Red Line 7000 is not a good Howard Hawkes film, but from another director would have been happily seen as an romantic racing cars actioner. After his breakout part in Lady in a Cage (1964), this film helped cement James Caan as a leading man. But most importantly, it gives a great part to the queen of cult films, Marianna Hill as a speed junkie.
