The French Connection (1971)

The French Connection is a 1971 American action thriller film directed by William Friedkin.

Two tough NYC police detectives, "Popeye" Doyle (Gene Hackman) and Buddy Russo (Roy Scheider) stumble upon a gigantic heroin-smuggling ring that connects the New York mafia to Marseilles, France. They discover who the "French Connection" is -- a suave gentleman named Alain Charnier (Fernando Rey) who manages to elude Doyle and Russo's pursuit. But when one of Charnier's hit men tries to murder Doyle, Doyle goes above and beyond traditional law-enforcement techniques, determined to stop Charnier and shut down his heroin operation.
