Coogan, an Arizona cop, is sent to New York to collect a prisoner. Everyone in New York assumes Coogan is from Texas, much to his annoyance. To add to Coogan’s problems the prisoner isn’t ready, so he decides to cut a few corners. In the process the prisoner escapes, and Coogan is ordered home. Too proud to return home empty handed, Coogan sets out into the big city to recapture his prisoner.

Critical Reception

“Eastwood is very effectively cast, and it is to his credit that he was willing to play such an unlikable and offensive SOB at this relatively early stage of his big-screen career.” – Fairbanks – IMDB

“This one is a fun romp, and like all in the genre, not to be taken too seriously. Highly recommended.” – Scooter0123 – IMDB
