It’s the loose-censored early 1970s, and screen bandits shootin’ up the American movie landscape are no longer suffering the once-mandated automatic moral retribution. Walter Matthau launched himself into the genre with this excellent Don Siegel on-the-run epic, about an old-fashioned independent bandit who accidentally rips off the mob for a million. It’s great, wicked fun with Joe Don Baker, Andy Robinson, John Vernon, Felicia Farr, Sheree North and Jacqueline Scott. On Region B Blu-ray from Indicator (Powerhouse).
