McQueen and Ali McGraw strike sparks as a career criminal and his intensely loyal wife, who gets him sprung from prison for a daring robbery that goes violently awry in vintage Peckinpah fashion. McQueen was at the apex of his stardom when he reteamed with the director for this Jim Thompson adaptation scripted by Walter Hill, which delivered thrills as moviegoers flocked to see it—not least because McQueen had fallen for his leading lady, then at the apex of her stardom.

A film by Sam Peckinpah
