Deadhead Miles is a 1973 American road comedy film directed by Vernon Zimmerman from a script by Terence Malick,[2] and starring Alan Arkin.

George Raft and Ida Lupino make cameos.

Alan Arkin's character, Cooper, drives a yellow Peterbilt down America's highways and byways, tells us he's an "engine man," tries to hustle a load, finds humor where he can. Cooper takes revenge on the police, reminiscent of the Kit Carruther's character in Malick's directorial debut, Badlands (1973), when he throws a set of the boss's keys into a barrel of oil after being told he's fired.[3]

The movie was never theatrically released.[4]
