Brannigan movie scene

John Wayne and Judy Geeson star in Brannigan.

John Wayne (Red River) is the eponymous Chicago cop in the 1975 action-filled comedy crime movie Brannigan.

In the movie, Brannigan is sent on a fish-out-of-water journey to England to pick up a bail-jumping thug (John Vernon, Animal House) for extradition. But to the chagrin of Scotland Yard (represented by The Great Escape‘s Richard Attenborough), the mobster is abruptly kidnapped from under their noses, and Brannigan has to join forces with a whole different breed of cops—including Judy Geeson (Man in a Suitcase) as a fetching if no-nonsense Detective-Sergeant—to track him down…all over a gorgeous 1970s-era London.

Featuring a jazz-inflected score by Dominic Frontiere, Twilight Time’s Blu-ray edition of Brannigan includes the following features:

-Isolated score track
-Audio commentary with actress Judy Geeson and film historian Nick Redman
-Judy Geeson’s “Behind the Scenes” home movie footage
-Original theatrical trailer
-liner notes by Julie Kirgo
