    I think "Targets" was one of Boris Karloff's greatest movies and a real time capsule of late 1960s Hollywood. Most of the scenes were filmed in the San Fernando Valley. The drive-in scene at the end (where the Studebaker was victimized) is particularly good. I would recommend this movie to anyone.

    Karloff went on to make two quickie movies "The Witch House" and "Curse of the Crimson Alter". He died in 1969. I had the very good fortune of speaking with Sara Jane Karloff, Boris' daughter, several times in the 1980s and 1990s when I lived in California and attended movie memorabilia events. She was every bit as humble and personable as her famous father was said to have been.

    It may be common knowledge, but while I was watching an obscure 1968 Film called "Targets" on FLIX cable channel today there was a scene in the last 10-15 minutes where a red '53 Stude was involved in a collision at a drive-in movie. There were a lot of vintage cars in the drive-in scene, but this one definitely caught my attention and I winced. This flick may've been Karloff's last since he died in 1969.
