Dir. Don Siegel. 1968, 93 mins. 35mm. With Clint Eastwood, Lee J. Cobb. An Arizona deputy known only as Coogan (Clint Eastwood) comes to town to extradite a suspect and finds himself cheated by cabbies, insulted by hookers, dissed by the cops, and even attacked by his prey’s strident, vaguely Jewish mother. The title puns on the location of the Polo Grounds, a tenement stoop of a ballpark once home to the New York Giants; the big action scene is set around the Cloisters.
