Does anybody remember a teen movie from the early 70s about two kids hitching up, one involved in a robbery with a gun, a car and maybe Steve Miller music (like Take The Money And Run or The Joker). It was a B or C movie and looked colorful (Hawaii or California). It might have also had the word Rose in it. If anybody can remember that far back and remember the movie title -- you are truly amazing!
I need more of a plot on knowing the flix. What was it about?
Aloha Bobby and Rose
I own the DVD. Was better in memory than on re-watching, but you might like it.
That is it. Good catch there dude.
Thanks for posting but I think Darkwolf377 got it.
He got it dead on.
I dig 70’s crime films—they weren’t afraid to be miserable.
As far as revisiting these flicks I saw back then, Vanishing Point is now one of my favorites. If you like this genre you might enjoy it.
Thanks! That was incredibly quick. I never watched it back then but for some reason remembered the trailer. And why do I want to remember the title now! It is too weird. Anyway, thanks again.
You smoke pot, right?
Say, I was wondering, can you cite your tagline?
You’re welcome. I remember when it came on the ABC late movie and that dude who used to say “On The Looooove Boat!” said “Aloha, Bobby and Rose” all low and threatening, so you knew it was gonna be one miserable crime flick! :D
Yikes! I falsely accuse imdb to have commited severe manglement of the english grammar!
Anyway, never hoid of it.
Ah! But for my generation it would have been “The Legend of Billie Jean” in ‘85 or “Pump up the Volume” in ‘89.
Had a hit Pat Benatar song out of it:

Lots of sources, look it up.
IMDB has caused my brain to ache with some of their write-ups. Unfortunately, until someone makes something better, we’re stuck with it. I just double-check when I’m doing research.
Sadly, this was exactly my own experience with Goofy's Cavalcade of Sports.
I remember both of those flicks, though I was 20 in ‘85. The Rebel Teen is one of the most common Hollywood fixtures, and one of the toughest to pull off effectively.
I liked the movie “Vanishing Point”, along with “Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry”, and “Two Lane Blacktop”. Vanishing Point was released in 1971 I think, the same year I was born. The take the money and run car-chase movies from that gernre were awsome.
The Rebel Teen movie would be easier when set in unfree settings. Remember ‘91’s “Swing Kids”? Jazz-obsessed teens in Hitler’s Germany?
