An Australian exclusive with The Chase on Blu-ray for the first time. A crime classic starring Marlon Brando, Robert Redford and Jane Fonda.

When "Bubber" Reeves (Robert Redford, The Sting) escapes from prison, it upsets the folks in the nearby town of Tarl, Texas. Sheriff Calder (Marlon Brando, The Godfather) wants to capture Reeves alive, which puts him in opposition to many of the townspeople who have resorted to mob justice. Businessman Val Rogers (E.G. Marshall, 12 Angry Men) wants Calder to apprehend Reeves quickly, through any means, since he fears the criminal will come after Val's son, Jake, who is sleeping with Reeves' wife (Jane Fonda, 9 To 5).

Sheriff Calder might be the law—but in this town, justice is firmly in the hands of the mob.In The Chase, Arthur Penn directs a cast of sterling A-listers in a film that showcases Hollywood on the cusp of a sea change in how it deals with issues of violence, race relations and sexuality. It is essential viewing for devotees of gritty, intense dramas.
