This movie teams a cop Jack Murphy (Charles Bronson
with a thief Arabella McGee (Kathleen Wilhoite
). This storyline of pairing a cop with a convict was popular in Hollywood during the 1980s after the success of 48 Hrs.
(1982). This high-concept was encapsulated in one of this film's movie poster tag-lines reading: "He's a cop, She's a thief, together they're running for their lives". During the 1980s, Midnight Run
(1988) also utilized this high-concept but replaced the cop with a bounty hunter. The convict-cop pairing was also earlier made famous in The Defiant Ones
(1958). See more
