The incredible scope cinematography is by Conrad Hall who shoots the cramped interiors very low key and back lit while the exteriors of Monument Valley are shot super bright in wide John Ford-style vistas, visually representing the two sides of the American psyche. Some of the action sequence angles and editing foreshadow George Miller’s ROAD WARRIOR. ELECTRA GLIDE is Guercio's sole writer/producer/director credit. His main career is in music and he has numerous credits as a producer most notably of Chicago.
There is an excellent, concise video introduction by the director (who also provides the audio commentary) where he explains how the film was initially attacked at Cannes as fascist. The DVD is currently out of print and available on blu-ray in Australia. The soundtrack was originally issued on vinyl LP with an elaborate gate fold sleeve that included a color booklet and two posters. The recent CD is a limited edition pressing of 1,000 from Quartet Records of Spain. The film and score are both worth seeking out!
