" The incredible wild car chase through New York traffic assures "The French Connection" permanent status as one of the
most gripping motion pictures ever made. Five Academy Awards plus three nominations officially established it as THE
motion picture of 1971. Besides the Oscars it won by the picture itself and by Gene Hackman as best actor, others were
for: directing, William Friedkin; screenplay, Ernest Tidyman and film editing, Jerry Greenberg. Nominations were in the
categories of supporting actor, cinematography, and sound. While the chase is the most dramatic incident, suspenseful
scenes are virtually non-stop, beginning in Marseilles when a French detective is shot by Pierre Nicoli (Marcel Bozzuffi).
As it began, the picture, based on Robin Moore's book about an actual narcotics haul, ends with gunfire. Filmed almost
entirely in New York, "The French Connection" is an unvarnished account of one aspect of big city life. As the awards
and acclaim attest, it is brilliantly done. "
