Famous Faces in "Fort Apache the Bronx" (1981)!by gattonero975 | created - 10 Jun 2016 | updated - 14 Jun 2016 | Public
This controversial, hard-hitting feature stars Paul Newman as the tough, tired Officer Murphy. His performance sets the tone of a film which moves from comedy to great desolation of spirit, from demoralization to hope and reality to romance.
In a bombed-out wasteland stands a police station-less a precinct house than a fort in hostile territory. Outside it's walls are the drugs, murders, the riots and the everyday lives that texture the bleak urban landscapes. Inside, amidst corruption and indifference, each officer does what he must to survive his tour of duty in FORT APACHE, THE BRONX.
