ACUNA BRUTES

Frank gives up his actress girlfriend, Earline Castle, because she is so mean-spirited as to dislike motorcycle racing. But considering Frank's one track preoccupation with the performance of his Spanish-made Acuna 750, his predilection toward wipeouts and the general level of pit stop conversations (Scott, who represents the better element, once tells Frank that ""the sport needs fellows with your educational background"") one feels that Earline isn't missing out on much. For the record, Frank escapes death to win the big one at La Paz, and Lois -- better than Earline at ego stroking and not hung up on having a career -- wins Frank. To each his own.
