In New York, armed men hijack a subway car and demand a ransom for the passengers. Even if it's paid, how could they get away?
This film was based on the best-selling novel of the same name by John Godey, published in 1973.
Lt. Rico Patrone:
We had a bomb scare in the Bronx yesterday, but it turned out to be a cantaloupe.
The sub-machine guns used by the gang are the Smith and Wesson M-76 9mm. There are a couple of scenes where Mr. Grey pulls the bolt back and releases it, letting fall into the chambered position. First the M-76 would have locked the bolt back in an open bolt configuration, making the gun ready to fire. Secondly, had any ammunition been in the magazine, pulling the bolt back and letting move forward onto the chamber, it then would have fired as all open bolt guns would have.
