Steve McQueen ("The Great Escape") and Ali MacGraw ("Love Story") are at their finest as husband and wife thieves on the run in this classic Sam Peckinpah ("The Wild Bunch," "Straw Dogs") action-thriller. The sizzling screenplay by Walter Hill ("The Warriors," "The Driver") is based on a novel by pulp legend Jim Thompson ("The Grifters," "After Dark, My Sweet"). The #5 box office hit of its year! Later remade with Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The action and the violence of The Getaway are supported by no particular themes whatsoever. The movie just unravels.
Pay close attention Error about the cast members, year it came out...
Oups! Pay close attention before you buy this movie
iTunes store should have been more careful about this one they have mixed all the cast members from the original movie with the remake. You should have paid more attention the Steve McQueen version didn't came out in 1997 since he died in 1980….
Alec baldwin, kim bassinger, bo hopkins, james wood, jennifer tily, michael madsen, phillip Seymour hoffman all are from the 1994 remake version of the movie….So none of these movies original or remake came out in 1997…. REally a pour jobs from the iTunes store once again
I have been waiting for this movie to be available for a long time. Awesome!! Another classic performance from Steve McQueen. Is he cool or what!! Combine Steve McQueen and the great director Sam Peckinpah and you have a great action movie.
