CastClint Eastwood Gene Hackman Ed Harris Laura Linney Scott Glenn Dennis Haysbert
NotesEastwood grows old without getting older. He proved this by becoming a father in his sixties. (Cary Grant who was even better looking did so in his seventies.) As a director he's up in the top ten but he does tend to be inconsistent. This is an enjoyable film but not one of his best. Here he's a Raffles type burglar who witnesses a murder. Suffice to say that the white house is involved and there's a cover-up and Eastwood becomes a target. The anomaly and reason for inclusion here is that Clint Eastwood's character says he's lived on disability pension since the Korean war. Yet it doesn't inhibit him in any way. We don't know whether it is physical or mental.
