Directed by: Tom Gries
Starring: Charles Durning, Ronny Cox, Zohra Lampert, and Dana Wynter
The Connection is a fun TV movie. The plot is about a newspaper man (Durning) who has to become a fence for a jewel thief. This movie has everything: Good acting, writing, and direction. Charles Durning is always great.
There are some mild slow moments but it picks up in the end with a exciting car chase and plot twists galore.
For a 70's TV movie it stands up well.
