Ok, I doubt anyone would call this a great movie. But there's one called The Chase, not the Charlie Sheen thing, but one that stars Marlon Brando as the small town sheriff who's nobody's boy, least of all EG Marshall, the banker that owns half the town. Also starring Robert Duvall, Angie Dickinson, Robert Redford as the hometown escaped convict and Jane Fonda as his wife.

I love older more obscure films. Here's a list of some of my favorites:

Prisoner of Second Avenue - Jack Lemmon

Electra Glide in Blue - Robert Blake

Soldier in the Rain - Steve McQueen and Jackie Gleason

Five Easy Pieces - Jack Nicholson

Scarecrow - Al Pacino and Gene Hackman

Mean Streets - Robert DeNiro and Harvey Keitel

The Laughing Policeman - Bruce Dern and Walter Matthau

Rabbit, Run - James Caan

Panic in the Streets - Jack Palance

Straight Time - Dustin Hoffman

Breezy - William Holden

The Incident - Martin Sheen

Just about any John Cassavettes film...Mikey and Nicky, Killing of a Chinese Bookie, A Woman Under the Influence, Minnie and Moskowitz, Husbands, and several others.

Some great calls Coolhand. I've seen most of them. I wasn't sure if Breezy was the one I was thinking of, but looked it up and it is. I don't know how long ago it was that I happened upon it on TV, but I haven't seen it since.

Soldier in the Rain, I've never even heard of, but Prisoner of Second Ave. is one of my favorite Jack Lemmon movies. Ann Bancroft is his wife in that and she's as great and sexy as ever. Ok, here's a trivia question. Lemmon gets mugged in Central Park in this movie. Who's the mugger?

Cassavetes was something else. Great as a director/writer, but I liked him a lot as an actor, too. Dirty Dozen, Machine Gun McCain, and a movie that seems to play all the time though I don't know why, is the one he did with Sidney Poitier.. I gotta check for the title..

Here it is, and one of the great character actors of all time, Jack Warden as the antagonist.

That was Sylvester Stallone. That is one of the funniest scenes ever after he gets home and you realize where he went wrong.

Have you seen the original "Out of Towners" with Jack Lemmon? One of the funniest movies of all time. Lemmon was cast so perfectly for the role.

I like Jack Warden. He was great in Night and the City with Robert DeNiro. I believe he was also the judge in "In Justice for All". I first saw him in From Here to Eternity, always liked him.

Stallone, is right! And where Lemmon went wrong was THE punchline, you're right, I'd forgotten. Out of Towners, funny as hell. Lemmon has to be one of the most versatile actors ever. I'm sure you've seen his dramatic turns in The Days of Wine and Roses, Glen Garry, etc. They once asked Frank Sinatra to define class and he mentioned three names. Spencer Tracy, Barbra Streisand and Jack Lemmon. Jack Warden shows up in a lot of my favorite movies, The Verdict and Shampoo come to mind along with the ones you mentioned.. and in Night and the City, when DeNiro tracks him down at the beach, and tells him he wants to promote boxing shows, "you know champ, like the good old days, the glory days.."
Warden says, "Ah, there never were any glory days. Boxing's always been a ____ ___'s ___. If you get this one, you are too good..

Boxing's always been a "poor man's out". Remember it well. Not sure if you're aware, but Night and the City was a remake of the original which was about a guy who promotes wrestling, it starred Richard Widmark in DeNiro's role. I watched for the first time about a year or two ago and it was good, but I liked the boxing version better.

A little off topic, but is that an expression you have heard around the boxing gyms? Seems to me I have, but I've asked others who have been around the game and they said no.

I knew it was a remake of a Widmark movie; haven't seen that one yet, but I like Widmark a lot.

I'm sure I've heard the term used around boxing circles before, not necessarily the gyms but among trainers, managers, fans etc.

You mentioned Sinatra earlier, his Tony Rome flicks were fun to watch. I also liked The Detective.

There is also a film by Pacino called Cruising, which doesn't get that much praise. It was heavily protested by gays because of the way they were portrayed, but it's a solid performance by Pacino in his prime.
