    It's within this article and I've seen reference to same elsewhere:

    Friedkin himself stepped in so the cameramen, who all had families, didn't have to put their lives on the line.

      Right he was in the car for the 26 block nonstop with Hickman driving. I knew that from the DVD commentary and quoted him... It was insanely dangerous....

        You can't drive 40mph on the stretches they were on never mind 90. Truly amazing.

          Friedkin was on TCM talking about it a few years ago....and he said himself it was irresponsible.

            I had never before known the story about filming that chase scene! Yet another reason to read T&F News!

                All of the car chase quotes were from this 1972 article Friedkin wrote.

                  Any quote I used was from an article and sourced from my memory. The chase was filmed when I was a teenager and relatives of my wife lived right near the location and it was talked about a lot through the years.
