The Getaway is a 1972 crime thriller directed by Sam Peckinpah and stars Steve McQueen as a recently released convict who is forced to participate in a robbery as a part of a deal his wife (Ali MacGraw) made with a corrupt businessman in order to secure the parole. After a double-cross, the couple find themselves racing towards the border before they are caught by law enforcement or the businessman's henchmen. The film was directed by Sam Peckinpah and was adapted by Walter Hill from the Jim Thompson novel of the same name. A remake starring Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger was released in 1994.
