Product Description

Clint Eastwood is Arizona deputy Walt Coogan, sent to New York city to escort a prisoner home. But the prisoner is not ready to be transferred back to Arizona and so Coogan cuts a few corners. However, this helps the prisoner escape and, after Coogan clashes with the Sherrif McElroy (Lee J. Cobb), he is ordered back to Arizona. But Coogan does not want to give up his pursuit of the prisoner and takes the matter into his own hands.

From Amazon.co.uk

Clint Eastwood is Walt Coogan, a deputy sheriff from Arizona on the loose in the urban jungle of New York. Searching for a violent prisoner he has let slip ("It's got kinda personal now"), Coogan, in Stetson and cowboy boots, runs up against hippies, social workers and a bluntly hostile New York police chief played by Lee J. Cobb. It's a key film in the Eastwood oeuvre, the one in which his definitive persona first emerges, marrying the cool, laid-back westerner of the Rawhide TV series and the Italian westerns to the street-wise, kick-ass toughness which would be further developed in the Dirty Harryfilms. Directed by Eastwood's mentor, Don Siegel, Coogan's Bluff has pace, style and its share of typical Eastwood one-liners (to a hoodlum: "You better drop that blade or you won't believe what happens next"). Like all Eastwood's successful movies, it cunningly plays it both ways. Coogan represents the old-fashioned conservatism of the west in conflict with the decadence of city life. Yet he's the perennial outsider, hostile to authority, a radical loner who gets the job done where bureaucracy and legal niceties fail. The film was to be the inspiration behind the TV series McCloud, in which Dennis Weaver took the Eastwood role. --Edward Buscombe --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is one of Clints best unknown films with all the right Clint ingredients. One liners, motorbike chases, punch ups, beautiful women and some genuinely funny moments as Clint lays down some of the characteristics that he was to play in 'Dirty Harry', namely a high level of cynicism.
A brief outline of the story is that Coogan (Eastwood) is a Deputy Sherriff from Arizona sent to New York to pick up a prisoner wanted in his State. This leads to the fish out of water scenario of the cowboy with the hat and boots mingling with the hippies of New York. On finding his prisoner in hospital recovering from a drug overdose and therefore unfit for transfer and himself wanting to get back to Arizona as soon as possible, Coogan bluffs him out of the prison hospital then subsequently loses him. Coogan looks to his 'country ways' of tracking his escaped prisoner down in the big city while all the time dealing with his problematic superiors.
The script is wonderfully entertaining and perfect for Clint Eastwoods 'less talk' method of acting, particularly on the plane coming into New York when a bussiness man sitting next to Coogan looking at his cowboy hat cheerfully asks;
Texas?
-Arizona.
Rancher?
-Nope, Deputy Sherriff.
Oh one of your boys step out of line in our fair city?
-Nope, one of yours in ours.
This is the general theme of the film as Coogan is constantly asked Texas?
-Arizona.
countless times this happens and it never becomes boring only better each time.
The film was directed by Don Siegel who collaborated with Clint on some of his best films and his level of class shows on this film, particularly in a pool hall fight.

Coogan's Bluff is a 1968 film directed by Don Siegel and starring Clint Eastwood, Lee J. Cobb and Don Stroud.

Eastwood plays the part of a young veteran deputy sheriff from a rural county in Arizona who travels to New York City to extradite an apprehended fugitive named Jimmy Ringerman, played by Stroud, who is wanted for murder.

Arizona deputy sheriff Walt Coogan, wearing boots and a cowboy hat, is sent to New York City to extradite escaped killer James Ringerman. He is up against the slow legal meanderings of New York when grumpy NYPD Detective Lieutenant McElroy informs him Ringerman is at Bellevue Hospital recovering from an overdose of LSD and cannot be moved until the doctors release him. Coogan is also told he needs to get extradition papers from the New York State Supreme Court.

Not satisfied Coogan decides to bluff his way into Bellevue Hospital and tricks the attendants into turning Ringerman over to him, and sets out to catch an early flight back to Arizona. Before he can get to the airport, Ringerman's hippie girlfriend Linny Raven and a tavern owner called Pushie ambush Coogan, beat him unconscious and enable Ringerman to escape. Lt. McElroy is furious with Coogan for acting on his own and letting a prisoner escape.

Stubborn, Coogan refuses to return home empty handed, and sets-out into the big city to recapture his prisoner despite being warned by the Lieutenant that he has no authority here, and further interference could lead to even more trouble.

Clint Eastwood's first collaboration with Don Siegel. Situated between his Spaghetti Westerns for Sergio Leone and the "Dirty Harry" series, "Coogan's Bluff" is a significant transitional film in Eastwood's career and screen image.

Format: DVD
Not only does this film look forward to clint and Don's own dirty Harry films but bearing in mind this was 1968 the films influence on early 70's cinema is clear. The examples that spring to mind would be the hippie club scene being used in midnight cowboy a year later with all the same ambience (its uses of video projection, lighting). Also the overhead chase shots were ripped off by william friedkin for the french connection in 71, not to mention the poolhall scene bearing a striking resemblance to matin scorscese's mean streets in 73. I could go on but not wanting to bore you just keep in mind the films date when you watch it and how similar it is to so much that followed. Just because critics never mention this it doesnt mean its not true.
Influence aside the film is a classic clint performance. Its very funny, brilliantly shot and is a great timepeace for the era. Yes it's dated but thats what adds so much charm. there is a great use of symbolism, with clints almost kinky boots popping up everywhere and a nice use of the colour red. the jacket worn by Susan Clarke in the last shot is pure 'don't look now' . Im starting again.An exremely enjoyable, yet artistic, very funny, beautifully played film thats just so underrated its criminal. If only modern action thrillers were this stimulating.
PS can someone please release a high def DVD the picture is not great!

Format: DVD
Arizona Deputy Sheriff Coogan (Clint Eastwood) is a pain in the neck to his captain. So when the opportunity comes to be free of him for a few days, he is sent to New York to bring back an escaped killer, James Ringerman (Don Stroud). But N.Y. Lieutenant McElroy (Lee J. Cobb) tells Coogan that Ringerman cannot be released as he is `ill' in a prison hospital ward recovering from a bad LSD `trip'. Because there is a lot of red tape to be gone through before Ringerman can be released, Coogan bluffs his way into the prison ward holding Ringerman, only to find him enjoying a conjugal visit from his wife Ellen (Betty Field). He gets Ringerman released and ready to transport back to Arizona, but is hijacked at the airport by Ellen and Pushie (David Doyle). So, despite orders to the contrary from McElroy, Coogan pursues Ringerman through New York leaving a trail of destruction behind him. The love interest is provided by a probation officer Julie Roth (Susan Clark) whom Coogan meets and saves from molestation at the police station. An entertaining thriller!
