REVIEWS:









"A very good new kind of movie, and that in spite of its being
composed of such ancient material as cops and crooks,
with thrills and chases, and lots of shoot-'em-up. ....
['The French Connection'] is a film of almost incredible
suspense, and it includes, among a great many chilling
delights, the most brilliantly executed chase
sequence I have ever seen."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; October 8, 1971
