One Two Three!

I have a soft spot for
a) films that take place in the subway
b) heist pictures
c) seventies films about New York City
d) films where Robert Shaw is up to no good
e) movies with David Shire soundtracks (All The President's Men, The Conversation, Zodiac)
f) movies where Walter Matthau comes to the rescue
Here's the trailer for a film that has it all - The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (1974)!

What a superb movie and cast. Robert Shaw is too much!

An all-time favorite! Haven't seen that trailer since the seventies!

Great film - Jerry Stiller in a serious role and plenty of stuff that would later show up in Reservoir Dogs! Walter Matthau as action star was the best (Charley Varrick etc.)!
