The Incident coming to DVD/Blu-ray in August

The Incident (1967)
Dir: Larry Peerce | Cast: Beau Bridges, Brock Peters, Martin Sheen, Tony Musante | Writers: Nicholas E. Baehr (screenplay by), Nicholas E. Baehr (story by)

Eureka are adding the Martin Sheen starring The Incident to their Eureka Classic range on 12th August.

After mugging an old man for a few dollars, thugs Artie (Sheen) and Joe (Tony Musante) hop a subway deep in the Bronx, and proceed to threaten and intimidate the Sunday night commuters all the way to Times Square. The terrified riders are a mixed group – an elderly Jewish couple, a family trying to protect their 5-year-old daughter, an alcoholic, two teens on a date, two military Privates, a bigoted African-American man and his wife, etc. – but they are united by their fear and sense of helplessness as switchblade-wielding Joe and Artie block the subway doors from opening at stops, and prevent the riders from leaving. Will any of them have the courage to confront the two maniacs?
