Watch This Film: The French Connection

4749584 By Jason Godbey

The French Connection is the quintessential New York City cop movie. It has a gritty realism that was a signature for films made in New York in the 1970s. We shot the episode where the  movie was filmed, underneath the elevated subway track in Brooklyn. It wasn’t easy considering the difficulty of getting a clean sound take when you’re under a running train, but it was amazing to walk in the footsteps of Gene Hackman and William Friedkin.
