USA Today - 08/25/1995
"Clint Eastwood's silliest movie without orangutans is also one of his most enjoyable.."

Product Description:

Phoenix cop Ben Shockley's dream of breaking "the big case" has faded through the years. His assignment to escort from Las Vegas "a nothing witness for a nothing trial" seems like just another meaningless exercise. Until the fireworks start. Clint Eastwood runs "The Gauntlet" into an explosive movie embodying its title with a vengeance. The witness is a hardened hooker whom everyone--including Vegas oddsmakers--wants dead. Trapped between both sides of the law, the two must survive an obstacle course of raging gunfire, blazing cars, swooping helicopters, murderous ambushes, crazed bikers, and crooked police. Building to a ferocious finale that shoots an armored bus to smithereens with more than 8,000 bullets, "The Gauntlet" is a trip you can't miss. Leave the driving to Eastwood: sit back and enjoy the ride.

Plot Synopsis:

An alcoholic, rather dim-witted police detective is sent to Las Vegas to extradite a prostitute with mob connections. The routine assignment grows more complicated when the pair is pursued by vengeful gangsters and corrupt cops intent on preventing her testimony. Watch this for Eastwood's performance and an action-packed plot.

Production Notes:

  • Theatrical release: December 1977.
  • The film was shot on location in Las Vegas, Nevada; and Phoenix, Arizona.
  • Warner Brothers originally proposed Barbra Streisand for the role of Gus Mally. She was slow to commit to the film, so Eastwood cast Sondra Locke instead.
  • Associate producer Fritz Manes, a longtime friend and collaborator of Eastwood's, plays the helicopter gunman.
  • Jazz musicians Art Pepper and John Faddis are credited as soloists on the soundtrack.
  • Renowned fantasy artist Frank Frazetta's effectively cartoonish depiction of Eastwood, Locke, and the bullet-riddled bus was a centerpiece of the film's ad campaign.
