The Onion Field DVD 1979 For Sale James Woods Ted Danson

DVD Synopsis and information:

"A heart-wrenching true story." -Leonard Maltin

From a real life American tragedy, this tale of thoughtless brutality, cold blooded murder and hard won justice is "a prowling, gripping, disturbing movie" (Newsweek). Starring John Savage and James Woods and featuring a stunning attention to detail, The Onion Field is "intriguing, absorbing, powerful, well acted " (Film Journal) and riveting from beginning to end.

On March 9, 1963, LAPD officers Karl Hettinger (Savage) and Ian Campbell (Ted Danson) pull over a vehicle for making an illegal U-turn and find themselves held at gunpoint by two seasoned armed robbers. Forced to give up their guns and drive to a deserted road, both officers face the horror of becoming victims in a mob-style execution but only one is able to escape into the bleak darkness of an onion field.
