Henry Blight Halicki, most commonly known as H. B. "Toby" Halicki, was an American director, writer, stunt driver, actor, and filmmaker. Halicki directed the 1974 film Gone in 60 Seconds, which contained a 40-minute chase sequence described by USA Today as "One of the Greatest Chase Scenes in History".
Halicki produced and starred in several other films in the same genre as Gone in 60 Seconds. He was killed in an accident while filming Gone in 60 Seconds 2 in 1989. His widow, Denice Shakarian Halicki, wanted to keep his legacy alive and, along with Jerry Bruckheimer and Touchstone Pictures, produced an eponymous remake based on the 1974 original.
