This was originally titled "Crack Up On Interstate 5". It has been re-edited to remove the scenes of Buddy Ebsen's Cadillac steering linkage slowly coming apart. This version implies he was distracted and swerved into the other lane, instead of a catastophic mechanical failure. An amusing programming note when this was shown on tv it was part of the nights promo. The announcer said tonight at 8:00 o'clock "Donny and Marie" at 9 "Crack up On Interstate 5".

SMASH-UP ON INTERSTATE 5 begins w/ a short introduction to the various drivers involved in the title catastrophe, before plunging us into the vehicular mayhem, complete w/ slow-motion impacts! Next, we are shown the lives of the victims, two days before the incident. This is made up of a true all-star cast of 70's TV luminaries, elder stars, and future celebrities! Robert Conrad (TV's THE WILD, WILD WEST and BAA BAA BLACK SHEEP) is the highway patrolman, Sgt. Sam Marcum. Vera Miles (PSYCHO 1 and 2) is the lonely Erica. Scott Jacoby (THE LITTLE GIRL WHO LIVES DOWN THE LANE, BAD RONALD) is a small-time crook, caught up w/ a fugitive from justice. Buddy Ebsen (TV's BEVERLY HILLBILLIES and BARNABY JONES) and Harriet Nelson (TV's ADVENTURES OF OZZIE AND HARRIET) are a loving, retired couple. David Groh (TV's RHODA) is a trucker. Sue Lyon (LOLITA) is a biker chick. Even the co-stars are great! There's a young Tommy Lee Jones (THE EXECUTIONER'S SONG, THE FUGITIVE, NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN) as a cop, and Donna Mills (PLAY MISTY FOR ME, TV's KNOT'S LANDING) as a pediatric nurse. Unlike many such films, the individual back stories are actually interesting. The characters are fleshed out well, and carry on intelligent conversations! We come to care about these people, so that when the accident occurs, it's tragic, and not just another action sequence. Highly recommended, especially for the 70's TV-movie connoisseur...

This film is like a bag of Cheetos. It's vintage, garish, empty cheesy calories, that somehow still sucks you in to finishing the bag. I've never been into this type of choppy vignette soap opera-y genre, but for some reason that I cannot define, I became absorbed in the individual stories of the characters. The 1970's era trappings are amusing; the polyester printed shirt uniforms of the men dancing in a bar are just one example. The direction results in exaggerated but sincere acting, and the variety in the cast is a nice feature. I'm a historian, and thus I tend to find pop cultural interest in watching older films like this. I'm unsure if it would appeal to someone who wouldn't have any interest in the vintage quirkiness of this.

I had seen this movie when I was 9-years-old and for the past 10 years, have not been able to get it out of my head! I didn't remember the entire movie, but remembered "Penny," and a few others. I remembered I cried at the end. Imagine my surprise and delight at finding it on Amazon Prime!!! I was thrilled! I loved the movie. It was made even better because it was based upon true events. It is one of those sad-but-good movies. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Interesting movie, circa 70's with Robert Conrad, Donna Mills and a very young Tommy Lee Jones....also Harriet Nelson and Buddy Ebsen. Probably a made for TV drama, I5 scenes do no sync up with the actual locals, probably filmed near the Grapevine....

I remember watching this movie when it first came out in the 70s. Just a great cast of actors, and above average Made for TV movie from the 70s. Wish they would have more of the made for TV movies from that era out.

I saw this movie on t.v. When it first came out and my memory of this movie is so different than what it actually was. Want to know what it was like in California in the mid to late 70's. This sure puts you there.

Tries to join the club of epic disaster movies, but plays more like a tv special. Best parts include watching a young Tommy Lee Jones and also the historical aspects if seeing Los Angeles in 1976. Freeway shots are all on th 210, with a major exception just outside an exit for I5 in Sun Valley. Felt like I was watching a CHiPs pilot without KZ900's.
