This was one of Spielberg's early films and was fun to watch. Goldie Hawn was funny and at her best in the role as a mother trying to get back the child that was taken from her while she was in jail. She highjacks her husband from prison and they go on a funny road trip in a police car to try to get him back. Ben Johnson was great as the leading officer in the chase to capture them.

"The apex of Johnson's career was reached in 1971, with Johnson winning an Academy Award for his performance as 'Sam The Lion' in The Last Picture Show, directed by Peter Bogdanovich co-starring Timoth"

A Complete review of Steven Spielberg's work (28 movies items)

" Cast : Goldie Hawn What was it about? A woman attempts to reunite her family by helping her husband escape prison and together kidnapping their son. But things don't go as planned when they are forced to take a police hostage on the road. My two cents: Even though 'Duel' is nowadays considered as Spielberg's directing debut, this movie was his official first theatrical feature film. Anyway, even though 'Duel' was a pretty cool flick, I thought this one was rather disappointing. In my o"
