  • How did The Chase miss?

    • Richard Taylor
    • 4/28/13

    With an an all star cast that would make many of today's producers drool, a screen play by an American icon, and one of the seminal directors of the sixties and seventies, it's hard to understand how the Chase missed. Not only did it fail with reviewers and at the box office, no one today even recalls it. Marlon Brando slogs his way as the cynical and tired hero of the story yet he is compelling every second he is on the screen. He is Brando. Robert Redford and Jane Fonda give us a glimpse as to why they were both soon destined for super stardom with their portrayals of the film's two most interesting and central characters, a husband and wife separated by society, ignorance and bad choices. Surprising performances by well known and soon to be well known actors add delicious moments of drama and pathos along the way. That may also be the problem. There is so much dramatic action that it must have been hard for Penn not to let some of scenery get chewed just a little. It may have turned viewers and reviewers of the day off as movies themselves were changing faster than the rancid society depicted in this film.The best part of this picture is how the tension in the town builds and how the many disparate characters slowly converge only to collide in a well paced dramatic climax that doesn't let you down. Unfortunately, Brando's character's final non violent act may say more about the film's production than it does the story itself.

    Sam Spiegel ran his Horizon Films as a boutique film studio with a lot of independence from Columbia Pictures. And why not? Spiegel brought great acclaim to Columbia via The Bridge On The River Kwai, Suddenly Last Summer, and a masterpiece Lawrence of Arabia. Spiegel cast Marlon Brando whom he brought to fame in On THe Waterfront also at Columbia and cast a stella array of players such as Jane Fonda, Angie Dickinson, Mirima Hopkins and Robert Redford. Athur Penn directed this very good film.

  • The Chase - Tense Drama

    • Bruce Reber
    • 8/2/11

    "The Chase" is a tense and shattering drama about escaped convict Bubber Reeves (Robert Redford) making his way back to his hometown, only to find that his wife Anna (Jane Fonda) and best friend Jake Rogers (James Fox) are having an affair of the heart. Complicating things are the fact that banker Val Rogers (E.G. Marshall) owns the town and everyone in it, including sheriff Calder (Marlon Brando), and the citizens (most of whom spend their time partying and playing musical beds) are convinced Bubber is a killer and band together to prevent Calder from making sure Bubber gets a fair deal. Bubber's mother (Miriam Hopkins) desperately tries to protect her son, but everything ends tragically when Jake dies in the junkyard and Bubber is gunned down on the courthouse steps, leaving Anna totally alone. Calder finally gets out from under Val's thumb when he and wife Ruby (Angie Dickinson) leave town. One of the best dramas of the 60's, and I have the DVD.

  • Watch For Miriam Hopkins

    Underrated film with a wonderful all-star cast. Watch for Miriam Hopkins in one of her greatest and last over-the-top performances as Mrs. Reeves.

  • Cutting to THE CHASE

    • Jarrod McDonald
    • 4/19/11

    This is a great film...it stays with you long after viewing. There are many layers and deep, rich characterizations from a very capable cast. It's worth noting that this was Miriam Hopkins' final film in an extraordinary Hollywood career.

  • A Must See

    This movie not only gives you Marlon Brando and a veritable "who's who cast" of anyone who became someone, but offers a first-time appearance from a often over-looked actor...Richard Bradford. Bradford's appearance in "The Chase" didn't go unoticed and he went on to star in a little known tv series called "Man In A Suitcase". He has appeared in such movies as "A Trip to Bountiful", "Missouri Breaks" and "The Untouchables" to name a few. In "The Chase" Bradford, not your typical mild & meek banker gives Brando a run for his money by handing in a great performance as the brutal womanizing Damon Fuller who is anything but a stereotypical number cruncher. Sublime. The rest of the cast, holds such illuminaries as Robert Redford, Jane Fonda, Robert Duvall, Angie Dickinson, E.G. Marshall, Diana Hyland and watch for a young Paul Williams. It's good & decent vs good ole boy mentality & money in this small southern town as an escaped convict "Bubber Reeves" makes his way back home. I love this movie! Check this movie out you won't be dissapointed.
