(Howard W Koch, 1973)
Release date: 28 October 2019
Limited Blu-ray Edition (UK Blu-ray premiere)

Inspired by the real-life exploits of New York cop Eddie Egan (who was also the basis for Gene Hackman’s ‘Popeye’ Doyle character in The French Connection), Badge 373 is a tough detective thriller, comparable to William Friedkin’s more celebrated feature. Duvall (The Godfather, Breakout) delivers a powerfully authentic performance as a brutal New York detective, ruthlessly hunting for the killer of his partner against a backdrop of social upheaval and violent gang wars.
