THE GETAWAY (1972)

 

CLICK THE POSTER TO BUY THIS FLICK FROM TLA CULT

 

Steve McQueen is tough as nails as Doc McCoy in Peckinpah’s classic adaptation of Jim Thompson’s pulp masterpiece “The Getaway.” Though the novel gives the character a little more depth, and really expands on the Rudy character, this is a pretty faithful adaptation. This film is 12 kinds of cool with a finale that doesn’t stop until the guns go click.

 

 

See you on forty deuce,
