Coogan's Bluff

Don Siegel's hilarious, action-packed study of an Arizona deputy sheriff (Clint Eastwood) set loose in New York City on the trail of an escaped prisoner (Don Stroud). Eastwood's performance as the flawed, headstrong superman has been terribly underrated, but he brings to the part of Coogan a sure knowledge of the man's obvious strengths and not so obvious failings. With able support from Lee J. Cobb, as the suffering detective whose rules Coogan can't avoid, and the golden Siegel touch, this adds up to an exciting variation on the lone-wolf genre (1968).
