DIRECTOR: JOSEPH SARGENT

CAST: WALTER MATTHAU, ROBERT SHAW, MARTIN BALSAM, HECTOR ELIZONDO

Lower East Side native and Metrograph favorite Walter Matthau wears perhaps the broadest tie in film history as a grousing Transit Authority lieutenant who gets an unlikely shot at heroism when a group of criminals take a downtown 6 train hostage and demand a million dollars from the flat-broke city. Engineered with perfect pace and verve by the underrated Sargent, with growly, jowly Matthau at his hangdog best.

The Taking of Pelham One Two Three is screening as part of Metrograph A to Z, a collection of films we think everybody should see. Click here for more info.
