The Sugarland Express Film Poster


After grabbing everyone's attention with TV movie Duel, Spielberg kept up the momentum with a rip-roaring theatrical debut that plays like Raising Arizona meets Midnight Run. In a set-up based on fact, Goldie Hawn and William Atherton are married ex-cons who head across country to snatch their child out of foster care. Inevitably, they leave a trail of devastation in their wake. Veteran Ben Johnson is the cop in pursuit.
