Steve (Harry Hamlin, Clash of the Titans, Making Love, TV’s L.A. Law) works at a Porsche repair garage by day, and by night reigns as the “King of The Mountain”, the most successful of a group that participate in races along Mulholland Drive on the hills over Los Angeles. In his highly tuned 356 Speedster, Steve races against both newcomers and veterans alike. Steve once raced against his friends Buddy (Joseph Bottoms, Blind Date, The Dove, The Black Hole) and Roger (Richard Cox, Seizure, Hell Hole, The Vindicator), but now his friends’ focus has shifted away from racing in favor of potential careers in the music industry, leaving Steve to reign as King alone. Steve is egged on by Cal (Dennis Hopper, Easy Rider, Blue Velvet, Speed), the former King. When Steve meets Tina (Deborah Van Valkenburgh, The Warriors, TV’s Too Close for Comfort), Steve is also torn between choosing Tina over his life as a racer and continuing being the King. Co-starring Dan Haggerty (Grizzly Adams, Condominiums, Elves), Seymour Cassel (California Dreaming, Minnie and Moskowitz, Dick Tracy), and featuring a hot soundtrack that includes Robert Palmer’s “Looking for Clues”. Directed by Noel Nosseck (Youngblood).Now watch this fast-charged action-drama from a brand new 2020 2K restoration!
