FRENCH CONNECTION II (1975 U.S.) D: JOHN FRANKENHEIMER W: ALEXANDER JACOBS/ROBERT and LAURIE DILLON P: ROBERT L. ROSEN
Popeye Doyle (Hackman) goes to Marseille after Fernando Rey in this very different sequel. It doesn`t have the same edge as the original and is pretty slow-going, but the part where Hackman is hooked on heroin is surprising and well-done. With Ed Lauter, Bernard Fresson, Jean-Pierre Castaldi, Charles Millot, Pierre Collet, Philippe Leotard, Jacques Dynam, Raoul Delfosse, Andre Penvern, Jean-Pierre Zola, Roland Blanche, Patrick Bouchitey, Philippe Brizard and Paul Mercy. Hal Needham was the stunt co-ordinator, and has a part. There was also the tv movie POPEYE DOYLE in 1986.
