''The French Connection'', a 1971 crime thriller film directed by William Friedkin, written by [[Film/{{Shaft}} Ernest Tidyman]] and produced by Phillip D'Antoni, is the tale of NYC cop "Popeye" Doyle (Gene Hackman) and his partner, "Cloudy" Russo (Roy Scheider). One day, they stumble upon a huge shipment of heroin from France. The trail leads to notorious drug kingpin, Alain Charnier (Fernando Rey). {{Car Chase}}s [[HilarityEnsues ensue.]]

A classic piece of seventies Hollywood cinema, based on the true story of the two cops who would stop the drug trafficking between France and the US, it was a huge success, both financially and critically. The film won 5 [[UsefulNotes/AcademyAward Oscars]] including Best Picture, Best Director for William Friedkin, and Best Actor for Gene Hackman. Thus it would come close to winning the Big Five, but lacked a female main character. It also won for Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Film Editing and the car-chase alone is worth it.

* SelfDemonstratingSong: Popeye goes into a nightclub where a girl group is singing a song called "Everybody Gets to Go to the Moon", which is actually original to the ''French Connection'' soundtrack. Here are some of the lyrics in the chorus:
--> Everybody's going to the moon\\
Everybody's going, it'll be quite soon\\
It's customary in songs like this\\
to use a word like spoon...\\
You know everybody's going to the moon
** The next time the chorus comes around the song uses "June" instead of "spoon".
