Actually filmed in 1971, shortly after Jane Fonda and Donald Sutherland had co-starred in the very different "Klute", but not released anywhere until 1973. Fonda and Sutherland, who were briefly a real-life romantic item around that time, were also involved in "The FTA Show", an entertainment touring towns in the US with military bases nearby; the show was a satirical event protesting the Vietnam war. Several other people connected with "Steelyard Blues" were also involved, notably actor Peter Boyle. See more »

If I help Frank keep Veldini straight, I'm off the hook.
Where does that leave Veldini then?
Out on the street - for awhile, anyway.
Come on, Frank's a cop.
I can take care of him. He used to be a John.
Was he any any good?

A film that holds up much better than its original reviews would let on. Although Fonda looks a bit disoriented at moments, there are a couple of scenes between her and Sutherland where the two simply radiate the star power that made them famous. Overall the film has a charm and warmth to it that, despite a little clumsyness at times, still makes it very much worthwhile and displays an interesting idiosyncratic type of humor and counterculture charm we haven't seen much of in recent years.
Not a must-see on a saturday night, but a precious gem for the connoisseur.
