Film Screening: The Taking of Pelham 123

Thursday, November 8, 2018

The Taking of Pelham One Two Three is a 1974 American thriller film directed by Joseph Sargent, produced by Gabriel Katzka and Edgar J. Scherick, and starring Walter Matthau, Robert Shaw, Martin Balsam and Héctor Elizondo. Peter Stone adapted the screenplay from the 1973 novel of the same name written by Morton Freedgood under the pen name John Godey. The film received critical acclaim and holds a rating of 100 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, based on 35 reviews. Several critics called it one of 1974’s finest films and it was a box office success. As in the novel, the film follows a group of criminals taking the passengers hostage inside a New York City Subway car for ransom. Musically, it features “one of the best and most inventive thriller scores of the 1970s”. There will be a commentary and discussion led by Dan Rigney of WJFF. This film features a phenomenal jazz score and is the epitome of how jazz has been interwoven in American history, particularly in Hollywood!
