British Gangsters, Seventies Style: The Squeeze (1977)

Among fans of British Gangster cinema, it's common consensus that GET CARTER (1971) and THE LONG GOOD FRIDAY (1980) are classics of the genre.  But in the decade between the two, did the Brits produce any great gangster films?  Are there any neglected gems out there?  Over at Criminal Element, I talk about a movie that may not be quite as great as these two but that deserves more attention than it has gotten. It's the grimy 1977 flick   THE SQUEEZE, starring Stacey Keach, David Hemmings, and Carol White.
