The Gauntlet (1977)Director:
Michael Butler, Dennis Shryack
Clint Eastwood, Sondra Locke, Pat Hingle
Great flick . Sondra Locke is outstanding. Underrated film .
A hard but mediocre cop is assigned to escort a prostitute into custody from Las Vegas to Phoenix, so that she can testify in a mob trial. But a lot of people are literally betting that they won't make it into town alive.
The performances were top-notch, with Eastwood's persona making any film of his films watchable. He gives a stellar performance. Sondra Locke as Gus Mally was perfect. The chemistry between the leads was outstanding. Sondra Locke is gorgeous and the film is a chaotic road trip justice that is just one hell of a ride . One of my favorite pairing of Sondra & Eastwood .
