Plot

The Lineup (film) movie scenes

An international drug-smuggling racket plants heroin on unsuspecting American tourists traveling in Asia, so that the dope can pass through customs undetected. Two psychopathic killers (Eli Wallach and Robert Keith) and their driver (Richard Jaeckel) then collect the contraband, murdering several people along the way. Lt. Ben Guthrie leads the police hunt for the criminals.

  • Richard Jaeckel as Sandy McLain

  • In the film Warner Anderson reprises his role as Lieutenant Ben Guthrie from the TV series. However, Tom Tully's character, Inspector Matt Grebb, is replaced by Inspector Al Quine, played by Emile Meyer. Tully, the T.V. series co-star, was not seen in the film. Anderson, the star of the TV series, is not given star billing in the movie; star billing was instead given to Wallach, who played the movie's main villain.

    The film contains the line, "When you live outside the law, you have to eliminate dishonesty," of which Jonathan Lethem writes that "Bob Dylan heard it…, cleaned it up a little, and inserted it into 'Absolutely Sweet Marie'" (as "To live outside the law you must be honest.").
