Product Description:

Shot in 1974, THE SUGARLAND EXPRESS was made by Steven Spielberg just one year before he rose to international fame with JAWS. Following in the footsteps of Terrence Malick's 1973 tale of lovers on the run, BADLANDS, Spielberg's film centers on the exploits of Lou Jean (Goldie Hawn) and Clovis Poplin (William Atherton). After Clovis escapes from prison, the two head off in pursuit of their child, whom they have been forced to give up to an adoption agency. Mayhem breaks out at they take a state trooper hostage along the way, with Spielberg neatly guiding the movie to a turbulent, yet satisfying conclusion. Only 28 years old at the time of shooting, Spielberg had directed plenty of TV movies prior to THE SUGARLAND EXPRESS, but this was the feature film that kick-started his glittering career.

Plot Synopsis:

A high-octane caper about a woman who busts her husband out of prison so he can help her get their baby back from an adoption agency. With an army of lawmen on their trail, the couple hightail it by car across Texas, stopping to kidnap a policeman along the way.
