Description

This account of one of the largest U.S. drug busts at the time, loosely based on a true story and Moore's book, features one of the most famous chase scenes in film history as cars careen below the elevated train tracks dodging city traffic. The chase begins when a pair of hard-boiled New York City narcotics detectives uncover an elaborate heroin smuggling ring headed by a French crime boss. Hackman makes a lasting impression as tough-guy cop Popeye Doyle. Wunderkind Friedkin made his commercial breakthrough and won an Oscar for Best Director. The sequel, French Connection II (1975), directed by John Frankenheimer, is OK, too.
