Last updated on March 13th, 2023 at 09:21 am
Prime Cut is a 1972 American action crime film produced by Joe Wizan and directed by Michael Ritchie, with a screenplay written by Robert Dillon.
The film stars Lee Marvin as a mob enforcer from the Chicago Irish Mob sent to Kansas to collect a debt from a meatpacker boss played by Gene Hackman. It co-stars Sissy Spacek, in her first credited on-screen role as a young orphan being sold into prostitution, and Angel Tompkins.
The film was considered highly risqué for its time based on its violence and the hint of a homosexual relationship between two brothers. Its graphic depiction of female slavery includes a scene depicting naked young women in pens being auctioned like cattle. It is also noted for its depiction of the beef slaughtering process and for a chase scene involving a combine harvester in an open field.
