Brannigan -- John Wayne cast aside his usual Western gear to portray a tough Irish-American detective on assignment in London to catch a crook who fled the United States to avoid extradition.  Wayne's partner in criminal hunting is a British Inspector (Richard Attenborough) with a very different personal style.  After a rough bit, they become partners and cooperate in a rousing batch of car chases, false and good leads, booby traps, etc., before they trap their man.  Detective Wayne finds time for some heavy flirting with constable Judy Geeson (TO SIR, WITH LOVE), who would prefer that Wayne's flirting was considerably less heavy. Screenplay co-written by Christopher Trumbo (son of Dalton Trumbo).

From Brannigan (1975)
[Brannigan has used a revolver wrapped in a plastic bag to coerce Angell into revealing the whereabouts of Ben Larkin. Brannigan then puts the weapon on the table and telephones police headquarters]
Brannigan: You must be getting old, Angell, trying to push second-rate paper like this.
[Brannigan reaches the desk sergeant and doesn't notice that Angell has taken the gun in the plastic bag]
Angell: Turn around, big man!
Brannigan: Angell, you're a real bush-leaguer.
Angell: Oh yeah?
[Angell squeezes the gun's trigger, but it clicks empty]
Brannigan: Oh, you know something, I don't think it's loaded.
Angell: [flying into a rage] Why you dirty lousy mick! You got no rules! You got no...!
[Brannigan grabs a piece of wood and clobbers Angell, who falls unconscious onto the table. Brannigan ties him up while the desk sergeant on the phone yells for him]
