Mr. Majestyk

Finally saw it again lastnight. I hadn't seen it since the 70's. That ole truck took a beating. It seemed to hold up pretty well. You usually see vehicles bend in half doing them jump stunts but that truck didn't seem to. Anyone know how many trucks it took to make that movie?

There's some info at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071866/

Cool movie. The old F250 did pretty well. I wondered about the part where he's laying in the back with the girl driving, and he just kicks the tailgate to get it to drop so he can surprised the badguys behind them with his shotgun. Once my tailgate is latched, it had to be unlatched to fall...

Trivia for
Mr. Majestyk (1974)

  • The Ford truck was not modified to do the stunts - it was pretty much box stock. Ford used clips from the film in TV commercials to demonstrate how tough their trucks are built.
  • The owner of the watermelon farm where exterior scenes were filmed was initially paid $1,000 for the use of his land. However, upon learning that this movie had "Hollywood stars" in it, he upped the price to $10,000.

Yeah, it's out on DVD. I got it fron Netflix. I had already seen that IMDB write up. I was still wondering if they only used one truck or many.

That trivia bit certainly suggests one truck, since it refers to the truck in the singular. If Ford used clips for advertising, they probably would not want to advertise if they destroyed any trucks doing the stunts. This one might take some digging, especially since it's a pretty obscure movie these days.

That reminds me, I have to rent that again, great action. You pretty much can not go wrong with a Bronson movie. "They killed the giggler".

Mine would do that, but it started with a shortblock sliding out.

Ouch! Don't you just hate it when that happens?!!


Melon farmer or not, a Bronson action movie is a Bronson action movie.

I rented it just to see the truck
But its a really good movie.

I think the best ford truck scene is still in "gone in 60 seconds".
Who can't love a car chase with 73 F350 towing a Dodge challenger?

The "truck" is singular and unmodified. Only one was used, but it was used up. Apparently the chase was the last scene shot and the same truck was used throughout. Ford used the chase clip for advertising. One of my favorite Bronson movies.....
