The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (1974)

Director: Joseph Sargent

Writer: Peter Stone (Based on a novel by John Godey)

I did this wrong and saw the remake first but this is clearly the superior version.  Robert Shaw kills it as the leader of the gang who takes a New York City subway train hostage.  I love gritty 70s New York set movies and this is a really entertaining one.  Watch it!

Also check out that poster!  Show me one poster from the last year that is more compelling than that!
