Coogan is a deputy sheriff from Arizona who does not get along with his boss and does not do things exactly according to the book, and also a bit arrogant. His boss is fed up with his rugged individuality and sends him to New York to fetch a man waiting for extradition. When he arrives everyone thinks he's just another bastard. When the New York police lieutenant tells him that his prisoner is not ready to transport, Coogan tries to be patient. But when he decides that he can not wait anymore, he fakes one of the escorts to release the prisoner, and someone dumps him at the airport. Coogan's boss is pleased that he did it so badly and orders him to return, but Coogan feels responsible or his ego is hurt and tries to find, although he was warned by the lieutenant that he has no authority here.
Coogan's Bluff is one of my favorite movies directed by Don Siegel. Coogan's Bluff seems quite similar to other hollywood movies, you watch online from time to time, but it's really different, you'll be surprised. It has everything what a good film should have, great dialogues and many memorable scenes. Clint Eastwood and Lee J Cobb in a Thriller movie, what more could you want? Producer of Coogan's Bluff is Don Siegel. Enjoy watching, you can also filter all movies to show only movie directed by Don Siegel or starring only Clint Eastwood, just click on the names.
