After serving 12 years behind bars for armed robbery, tough guy Hank McCain finds himself the pawn of a ruthless mob runt’s rebellion against a high level don.
Premiering at Cannes in 1969, Machine Gun McCain sees John Cassavetes star in a one-of-a-kind Italian gangster film from director Giuliano Montaldo. Scored by Ennio Morricone, the film also stars Cassavetes’ collaborators Gena Rowlands and Peter Falk, bursting with the troupe’s rare energy.
