GENE HACKMAN RETURNS IN FRENCH CONNECTION II
|Dogging the heels of Gene Hackman's Popeye Doyle|
|Year of Release: 1975|
But the good news is that Scheider's replacement, French actor Bernard Fresson (resembling Vic Morrow just a bit), does a fine job, starting out as a angry, lecturing detective who has to babysit the infamous American until they begin to trust each other's rhythm... In that, there's more of a character arc than even Gene and Roy shared: them being buddies all along...
|Changed Partner in Bernard Fresson|
|"Tell me... Did you ever pick your feet in.. Paris?"|
