THE TAKING OF PELHAM ONE TWO THREE (Film Theatical Release USA 1974)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

The Taking of Pelham One Two Three—
dated 1974 movie, but worth watching—does not compare in quality or entertainment value as compared to the Tony Scott 2009 remake of the same movie that stars Denzel Washington and John Travolta. Look for Jerry Stiller in this film.
