The ultimate, notoriously rare, infamously violent, action packed cult classic road movie is finally available on DVD. Along with Vanishing Point and Two Lane Black Top, Electra Glide In Blue reflects a generation in turmoil and encapsulates the gritty, uncompromising, fiercely independent attitude of early seventies existential American cinema. With its sharp dialogue, astounding cinematography, oddball characters and
a deep-rooted sense for the absurd, Electra Glide In Blue is a unique and poignant unsung masterpiece. The first and only film directed by James William Guercio, Electra Glide In Blue stars Robert Blake as Vietnam Vet turned frustrated highway patrol traffic cop, John Wintergreen. Tired of handing out speeding tickets to spaced-out hippies, John aspires to reach the ranks of a detective. When the chance to prove his investigative skills arises John is suddenly thrown
into a world of corruption, lies and personal politics, eventually growing to despise the authority figures he once looked up to. It’s a situation that concludes with one of the most shocking
and ultimately tragic iconic images in modern cinema that will stay with you forever.
