The classic '70s cop show Baretta opened with Sammy Davis, Jr. singing, "Don't do the crime if you can't do the time," which is great advice for all of the would-be crooks out there. Of course, most criminals wouldn't break the law at all if they thought they were going to get caught. There are more than a few ways to stay ahead of Johnny Law, but the best — at least, when it comes to high-octane celluloid action, that is — is hiring a fantastic getaway driver. Click on the video above and ride with us as we run down some of the most iconic getaway drivers in cinema, from Patrick Swayze's Ronald Reagan-mask-wearing adrenaline junkie Bodhi in Point Break to Ryan Gosling's subdued, nameless wheelman in Drive.
