Car scene reusing and/or stealing.
Published 24/01/2016 @ 22:11:52, By PMEntertainmentLives
I forgot that one. I never saw the chase before in either movie, but I just got myself Top of the World (for 0,00$, as usual), I'll have to check out that chase. :grin: Btw, that's another Nu Image example. :wink:

Then, there's Fatal Justice (1994), a REALLY bad American-Independent production which not only reuses two car scenes from earlier A-I production Terminal Force (1989), but also takes footage from a Texas stuntmen group demo reel.

Not to mention the speeding Mustang scene in Capricorn One (1977) ending with the car driving off the open drawbridge into the waters below. I saw it reused in an episode of The Fall Guy (wotta surprise...), and the fall-off-the-bridge alone was reused in an episode of Hardcastle and McCormick, doubling a Mercury Cougar in a car chase.

I know. It just bugged me to make a discussion about it. I shouldn't have? :sad:


No, no problem :wink:
I just didn't know what else to say on the subject :grin:

Not only chases can be stolen, sometimes other action scenes
e.g. the explosion at the beginig of Die Hard 3 was re-used in the series Diagnosis Murder: http://www.imcdb.org/vehicle_90243-Grumman-Olson-Kurbmaster.html

Oh, okay. :grin:

Any scene is okay, as long as it prominently has cars. For instance, this scene has the explosion throw the Kurbmaster on its side, so it counts.

I have another example. One of the Jeep rollovers in The A-Team TV series was reused in an episode of Hardcastle and McCormick.

Also, Hardcastle and McCormick had a scene where a white and blue pickup truck flies off a cliff. It was reused in an episode of The A-Team. :lol:

One thing I can't take, though - is that pathetic episode of McGyver where they ripped off the whole chase scene from the Italian Job - what kind of fool thought of that as a good idea? I like McGyver, but that episode made me turn the TV off.

Also the scene with the hearse: http://www.imcdb.org/vehicle_73644-Hanomag-L28-1950.html Was just taken and recycled in MacGyver... The 1st season was really made in economy :grin:

It's taken from Funeral in Berlin (1966), you mean.

Speaking of hearses, the hearse falling off the cliff (Sensing a pattern here?) in Harold and Maude (1971) was reused in an SNL sketch (NOT Toonces the Driving Cat! That one used the ITC white Jaguar!). The stock footage was also available on the BBC Motion Gallery, and both its presences on the Gallery and on SNL proved the rumor that the freeze-frame was due to a malfunctioning camera to be false.

What about The Car (1977)? Footage of the possessed Continental driving itself off the cliff was seen in two episodes of Knight Rider's 1st season: "Trust Doesn't Rust", where KARR drives off the cliff to his doom, and "Forget Me Not", where KITT drives off a cliff to land safely on the ground.

And who could forget the episode of The Incredible Hulk, "Never Give a Trucker an Even Break", where a lot of stock footage from Duel (1971) is seen. Spielberg, who directed Duel, was angered by this, and made arrangements so none of his footage would be reused like that ever again.

Then there's the car chase from Marked for Death (1990), reused in The Chaos Factor (2000) (PM Entertainment) and Malevolent (2002) (CineTel Films).

...Is it coincidental that I was JUST thinking of "what if some part of The Hearse (1980) was ever reused?"?...

The Triumph crash from Resurrection (1980) was reused in the series Murder, She Wrote. (And YES, it falls off a $&@#% cliff...)

What film was it that had a (then newish so late 80s) Corvette going off a cliff? I remember that being re-used in a Murder She Wrote. And also one of those early 90s Perry Mason films.

A Corvette?...

All I recall being reused in Murder, She Wrote were the Jaguar XK-E from The Jerk (1979) and the Triumph from Resurrection (1980).

I might be wrong, but it was definitely used in one of those middle of the road American murder mysteries that used to be shown here (maybe Diagnosis Murder?) as well as the Perry Mason movie.

I found the scene in Perry Mason: https://youtu.be/kTq2SHrNA08?t=10m15s at least.

What is it with black-topped red cars falling off cliffs and being reused as stock footage? First, the Renault Dauphine from ITC, then, the Jaguar XK-E from The Jerk, and now this Corvette! :wam:

Here's my video I posted not even an hour after hearing about this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZYXygivNLI

The scene from Hardcastle and McCormick, episode "The Homecoming", where the police car flies off the cliff, was reused in the short-lived series Cobra, episode "Caged Fury".

Shattered Lies (2002) reuses footage from PM Entertainment productions Direct Hit (1994) and The Sweeper (1996).

Best of the Best 4: Without Warning (1998) reuses footage from PM Entertainment productions Last Man Standing (1995) and Pure Danger (1996).

Also, a more recent example: car chase footage shot for The Island (2005) was reused for Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011).

There is also the TV series Scrubs. The episode "My Friend the Doctor" reused an outtake of the Buick Skylark crash from Vanilla Sky (2001).
