The French Connection

Unspooled #5 June 13, 2018

This week Paul & Amy hit the streets for 1971’s The French Connection! They discuss whether Popeye Doyle is actually a hero, what went sideways during that incredible chase scene, and who the real-life inspirations for Doyle & Russo were. Plus: an interview with cop-turned-actor Brian Danker about what French Connection gets right and wrong about police work.
