“The Sugarland Express” is Steven Spielberg’s feature film debut, starring Goldie Hawn, Ben Johnson, Richard Atherton and Michael Sacks. It is based on a true story, though the details and some of the major events have been changed. In some ways we wish they’d been changed even more than they were in the film. It’s an incredibly strong debut film and it’s also uneven in places. Bob and I talk through what we liked and didn’t like about the movie and wonder if our views are influenced by Mr. Spielberg’s later huge successes.
