TITLE: THE CHASE
FORMAT: British Quad (30 x 40 inches)
STARS: Marlon Brando, Jane Fonda, Robert Redford. DIRECTOR: ARTHUR Penn.
NOTES: This drama about how the escape from prison of a local boy affects a small Texas town and how the characters find themselves drawn into an ugly crescendo of hatred and fear was notorious for the behind-the-scenes conflicts between Arthur Penn, his screenwriter and the producer, Sam Spiegel. It is a tribute to the brilliant cast that also included Angie Dickinson, James Fox and Robert Duvall, that they STILL managed to turn out an intriguing and well-received movie. The screen violence that marks the culmination of the plot was considered shocking at the time.
CONDITION: Grade A. FINE. Folded, as issued.
