Grand Theft Auto

Ron Howard made his directing debut with this 1977 action comedy from New World Pictures. A large number of cars are destroyed, all very cheerfully, and that's about all there is in the way of plot—which is plenty. Howard handles all this with verve and some accomplishment (and, it's rumored, an assist from Allan Arkush).
