STARRING:
Steve McQueen, Crahan Denton
DIRECTED BY:
Charles Guggenheim
GENRE:
Drama
Movie icon Steve McQueen stars as a college football star drawn into a gang plotting a bank heist. Based on an actual incident, the film was shot at the very bank that was robbed, and features several St. Louis police officers and bank employees playing themselves. This was one of McQueen's first movies after many years spent working in television; it stands the test of time as a first rate crime drama with a documentary feel! (BW)
