    Stunning! Is there any way to get a copy or a decent 300dpi file somewhere?

    OK, that’s one of the better ones. For me, it’s up there with the Polish (or was it Czech?) poster with the skull-face driver in the Ben Franklin $100 shirt. Still not the iconic bridge image but so far ahead of the “shouting heads” variations. Yeah, I’d so buy one.

    As a young woman, I saw this film in June 1977 at a multi Plex in Houston Texas. I don’t remember if we intended to see it or not but tickets cost less. And, I would watch any film starring Roy Scheider, a box office draw for me!

    Anyway, I was glad I saw the film. Sure, the terrorist bombing of the oil well and resulting riot were awful but I enjoyed the rest of the film. I liked the prequels. Then again, I attended foreign films and read subtitles. Was the public that clueless? There was little dialog in the Vera Cruz and Jerusalem sections and I can follow French.

    I was hurt that the film didn’t do well in 1977. Recent films had been similar in theme and it was true that the Zeitgeist had changed. Not only Star Wars but Smokey and the Bandit. Now, that film changed lives! Everyone in the nation adopted a “handle” with or without a CB radio.

    I am glad Friedkin made the film as it is still relevant today. And, nothing like it is possible today. I am glad critics, moviemakers and the public have come around to appreciating the film.
