Gene Hackman plays Jimmy Doyle, a hard- boiled NYC cop working a drug smuggling case involving a European druglord.

Original theatrical version features one of the best chase sequences in film history.

Film 101 is a series that explores elements of filmmaking, film criticism, and film theory. Each month we will present an exemplary classic film introduced by an important figure in the film community. This series is underwritten by The Vesta Fund.

Presented by Filmmaker Doug Torres (Assistant Director of 12 Years A Slave and The Lost City of Z). Free for Members.
