Steve McQueen ("The Great Escape") and Ali MacGraw ("Love Story") are at their finest as husband and wife thieves on the run in this classic Sam Peckinpah ("The Wild Bunch," "Straw Dogs") action-thriller. The sizzling screenplay by Walter Hill ("The Warriors," "The Driver") is based on a novel by pulp legend Jim Thompson ("The Grifters," "After Dark, My Sweet"). The #5 box office hit of its year! Later remade with Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger.
