We investigate conditions under which almost Peano continua contain dense arc components. These conditions involve the existence of almost continuous functions from the real line onto continua and excluding infty-ods from continua. It is also shown that a topological space of cardinality less than or equal to continuum which has a dense path component is the almost continuous image of the real line.
