1971. USA. Directed by Don Siegel. With Clint Eastwood, Harry Guardino, Reni Santoni, John Larch, Andy Robinson. Don Siegel, one of the giants of film noir (The Big Steal, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The Killers), easily adapted his narrative skills to widescreen and color, and created Eastwood’s signature role. They made several films together, and Eastwood (who soon turned director himself) honored Siegel as his mentor. Although violent, Siegel’s “cop” films display a modern moral complexity. 106 min.
