After losing their baby son to the state, small-time crooks Hawn and William Atherton snatch him right back and go on the run, pitting them against seemingly every law enforcement officer in Texas. Spielberg’s first feature refines the technical mastery of Duel, but Hawn’s performance as an exasperated, manically determined mother gives this picture a more resonant pathos.
