TAKING OF PELHAM ONE TWO THREE, THE (1974)

45th Anniversary

One of the most New York movies ever made is a time capsule of the Big Apple's hellish Fun City days. A quartet of desperados led by Robert Shaw's icy soldier of fortune hijacks a subway train loaded with passengers — and only an unlikely duo of transit cops, Walter Matthau and Jerry Stiller, can foil their ingenious ransom scheme. Fierce, funny and full of fetid atmosphere that hits you like a gust from a passing Lexington Avenue Express. Powered by David Shire's propulsive score and culminating in one of the all-time great closing shots. (Note courtesy of Noir City.) DIR Joseph Sargent; SCR Peter Stone, from the novel by John Godey; PROD Gabriel Katzka, Edgar J. Scherick. U.S., 1974, color, 104 min. RATED R
