    Terrific memory jogger. I worked in Thousand Oaks in the late'60s and early '70s. The airport was located in area known as Hill Canyon. The "rural road" they are careening through is the old Highway101.

    The extended version of the film reveals that Dick Shawn's beatnik pad is the southernmost house in Sunset Beach, Ca. The house is known as the Coast Guard house, and – as can be seen in Google Maps' street view – it's still there. When I was 5 years old, I watched the filming of the scene where Dick runs out of the house and tears off in his car.
