Walter Matthau, Robert Shaw and Martin Balsam lead an all-star cast in this "gripping and exciting" (The Hollywood Reporter) suspense film based on the sizzling best seller by John Godey. A gang of thugs who have hijacked a subway train near New York's Pelham Station threaten to kill one hostage per minute. Forced to stall the assailants until a ransom is delivered or a rescue made, transit chief Lt. Garber (Matthau) must somehow ad-lib, con and outmaneuver one of the craftiest, cruelest villains (Shaw) ever. It's a race against time, and no one knows whether things will end heroically or tragically in this pulse-pounding thrill ride!
Perfect condition. Exactly as pictured and described. Very pleased with purchase.Published 1 month ago by Michael R. Ramos
A hard-boiled classic from the golden age of police dramas in the 1970s. Matthau and Shaw are magnificent. This is far and away better than the recent remake.Published 1 month ago by Samuel Hawley
