Taking Pelham, Then and Now: Sound On Sight Radio #126


Taking Pelham, Then and Now

This past weekend saw the release of director Tony Scott’s re-envisioning of Joseph Sargent’s 1974 thriller The Taking of Pelham One Two Three, with Denzel Washington taking over from Walter Matthau and John Travolta subbing for Robert Shaw. We’ll examine both the remake and Sargent’s original, as well as taking this occasion to take a look back at another crime film from the era, John Boorman’s Point Blank, which itself was remade as Payback, starring Mel Gibson.
