THE SEVEN-UPS (1973 U.S.) D/P: PHILIP D'ANTONI W: SONNY GROSSO/ALEXANDER JACOBS/ALBERT RUBEN
Roy Scheider heads an unofficial bunch of undercover cops who use highly irregular methods to get the bad guys. The squad is blamed when someone starts wiping out wise guys. D'Antoni produced BULLITT and THE FRENCH CONNECTION, and like those more famous movies this decent cops and robbers thriller (based on a true story) features a great car chase. With Richard Lynch, Tony Lo Bianco, Joe Spinnell and an uncredited John Aprea. Grosso (who has a part) was a real-life cop, and partner of Eddie Egan (who FRENCH CONNECTION was based on).
