Lightfoot discovers that the preacher was really one of the members of a gang that robbed a security company a few years ago that were never caught, and that he had the nickname "Thunderbolt." After the two of them stop for ice cream, after they get back, the two remaining men that were chasing them the vicious Red Leary (George Kennedy) and the GentleGiant Eddie Goody (Geoffrey Lewis) catch up, and they want the money from the robbery. Thunderbolt explains that the money was in a one-room schoolhouse, but the building has disappeared and the other member of the team who knew about it is dead. Lightfoot has a suggestion: pull the same robbery of the same company over again, because nobody will be expecting it.

While only a moderate box office success, this 1974 action-comedy film was critically adored, and allowed its writer/director Michael Cimino the clout to make his next movie, ''Film/TheDeerHunter''. Jeff Bridges was nominated for an {{Academy Award}} for Best Supporting Actor for his role; Eastwood's performance was also highly praised, and he believed he also deserved an Oscar nom, though none came. Clint blamed the relative failure of this film (compared to his other pictures of the time) on United Artists' poor marketing. Though this was meant to be the first in a multi-picture deal with the company, Eastwood soon went back to Creator/WarnerBros and never made another film for UA.

At a rural Montana church, a preacher (Creator/ClintEastwood) is conducting a Sunday service when some men come in and start shooting at him. He escapes, with the aid of Lightfoot (Creator/JeffBridges), a car thief who happens to be driving by and helps him by running over one of his pursuers and giving him a lift.
