A couple of high school grads spend one final night cruising the strip with their buddies before they go off to college.
About 300 pre-1962 cars were needed to create the cruising scenes, and over 1000 classic-car owners who responded to ads in local newspapers were interviewed.
Hey, what do you say, Curt? Last night in town... you guys gonna have a little bash before you leave?
Steve Bolander: The Moose have been looking for you all day.
Steve Bolander: They got worried... thought you were trying to avoid them or something.
Terry Fields: What is it? What do ya got?
Curt Henderson: Oh...
When the Pharaohs take Curt to loot pinball machines, Mr Gordon invites Curt into the diner to see Hank. When Curt is conversing with Hank and Mr Gordon, the scene changes perspective, after which all background labeled items and signs read backwards or are "mirror reversed" in the shot. It is most likely an edit correction to keep the orientation of direction correct from where Curt walked in and Joe sticks his head in to let them know they are finished.
Worded epilogues prior to the credits shows what happen to the characters following the movie. While this has since become commonplace in films, it was considered innovative at the time.
