(ABC, 9/25/1974, 90 mins). After a number of speeders have deliberately been sent to their deaths by a psychotic sheriff in a small-town speed trap, the brother of a recent victim rolls into town in his hot rod and forces the lawman into a high speed duel. Real-life brothers Martin Sheen and Joe Estevez played fictional brothers and future star Nick Nolte had a small role as a local punk in this one, billed by ABC Television as its 200th “Movie of the Week” at its premiere showing.
