"Sheer Entertainment - Fast, Fascinating, Gripping And Gritty." -New York Magazine

New York City detectives "Popeye" Doyle (Gene Hackman) and Buddy Russo (Roy Scheider) hope to break a narcotics smuggling ring and ultimately uncover The French Connection. But when one of the criminals tries to kill Doyle, he begins a deadly pursuit that takes him far outside the city limits. Based on a true story, this action-filled thriller, with its renowned chase scene, won five Academy Award® in 1971, including Best Picture, Best Director (William Friedkin) and Best Actor for Hackman.
