TCM has The French Connection

TCM has been doing a surprisingly good job of getting broadcast rights to more and more movies from 20th Century-Fox. One of these includes The French Connection, which is airing tonight at 10:00 PM ET. I've blogged briefly about it before, so won't go into too much detail here. One interesting thing, however, is the famous car chase scene. In some ways, it's not a car chase at all, as you've got a car following... an el train. (It's not the first time you had a car chasing a train, either. There have been lots of movies with cars following trains, such as The Narrow Margin. And one that was displayed as more of a high-speed chase has a bus chasing a train in Number Seventeen, all the way back in 1932.) The French Connection is airing after Bullitt, a movie that I have actually not seen before.
