"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Million Dollar Movie

I don’t know if Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, the Clint Eastwood vehicle featuring a young Jeff Bridges, is a sleeper but if you have never seen it, do yourself a favor and put it to the top of your Netflix queue. It was Michael Cimino’s directorial debut. George Kennedy is terrific, as usual, in a supporting role.

Speaking of Cimino, check out this 2002 feature on the director from Vanity Fair.

I love this flick. Good call on Kennedy - as good as Bridges and Clint are, Kennedy is memorably hilarious too. The scene where he tells off the kid while riding with Geoffrey Lewis in the ice cream truck just kills me.

...but what was with the nutjob with the trunk full of bunnies?
