USA Today - 06/01/2004
"[T]his first Eastwood/Don Siegel teaming is a model of how a not-quite B-pic should move, right down to a climactic Manhattan cycle chase..."

Product Description:

This fish-out-of-water film was the beginning of a long association between Don Siegel and Clint Eastwood, who stars as the eponymous deputy sheriff from Arizona. The cowboy-cop is sent to New York City to extradite escaped murderer James Ringerman (Don Stroud), only to be told by police lieutenant McElroy (Lee J. Cobb) that the killer is recovering from an acid trip at Bellevue Hospital and can be released only with his doctors' approval. After some low-key flirtation with probation officer Julie Roth (Susan Clark), Coogan decides to take the bull by the horns and tricks Ringerman's Bellevue attendants into releasing him. However, on the way to the airport, the Arizona-bound cop is waylaid by Ringerman's amusingly wacked-out girlfriend, Linny (Tisha Sterling), and beaten senseless by a goon, allowing his prisoner to escape. Later, while in Julie's apartment, he surreptitiously extracts Linny's file to get her address and tracks her to an Electric Circus-like club whose habitu├ęs he regards with utter disdain, and he persuades the ditsy woman to take him back to her apartment. An amusing action film, COOGAN'S BLUFF makes much of the irony of the laconic Old West, with Eastwood being equally put off by both the bureaucratically hamstrung cops and the acid-fueled hippies. Cobb and Clark are good in supporting roles.

Plot Synopsis:

Clint Eastwood is Coogan, an Arizona sheriff's deputy who travels to New York to bring back an extradited prisoner. When the convict escapes, a wild and dangerous chase through New York ensues. Coogan must contend with the New York underworld and a bunch of unhappy NYPD officers in order to get his man.
