Description
Cast: Walter Matthau, Joe Don Baker, John Vernon In a sleepy southwestern town, a group of bandits led by the laconic Charley Varrick (Matthau, at his very best) rob a small bank. The unexpectedly large sum they steal actually belongs to the mob, who send out a vicious hit man (Baker) to take back the money and eliminate the thieves. It’s up to Charley, who’s more clever than he seems, to turn the tables on his pursuers.
