The 1973 crime thriller movie Badge 373 carries the credit that it was “Inspired by the Exploits of Eddie Egan,” the New York City police detective whose work was also the subject of the award-winning 1971 movie The French Connection.
In Badge 373, Robert Duvall (Get Low) portrays Eddie Ryan, a tough and abrasive Irish cop who is forced to turn in his badge after scuffling with a suspect who then falls to his death from a rooftop. But that doesn’t stop Ryan from heading out on a one-man vigilante crusade to avenge his partner’s murder, all the while neglecting his new live-in girlfriend, Maureen (Verna Bloom, National Lampoon’s Animal House). Ryan’s investigation leads him to Puerto Rican drug kingpin Sweet Willie (Henry Darrow, A Life of Sin) and a shipment of guns for the Puerto Rican underworld.
