The ultimate
16 April 2002 | by (UDA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie with my Dad in 1973 in an art house theater in Cape Cod, he'd seen it as a kid and was always impressed with it, the story is basically about Lowe and Macglaglen who work on the hudson tunnel as "Sand Hogs" the men who dig the way through, both love the same woman and fight over her, but at the end when the brace gives way Macglaglen stays behind holding the whole river back while lowe escapes, it was the bravest scene i'd ever viewed in a movie
