1973, 20th Century Fox, 103 min, USA, Dir: Philip D’Antoni

Roy Scheider stars as Buddy Manucci, a maverick cop who goes to war against kidnapper Vito Lucia (Tony Lo Bianco) in this New York action classic. Director D’Antoni, a producer on BULLITT and THE FRENCH CONNECTION, adds another classic car chase to his resume with a riveting midpoint action sequence in which Scheider flies through the streets of Manhattan and New Jersey in his 1973 Pontiac Ventura. Adapted from a story by Sonny Grosso, the real cop Scheider played in THE FRENCH CONNECTION.
