The Jericho Mile

Michael Mann made a regular appearance as co-screenwriter of popular cop shows like Starsky & Hutch and Vega$in the seventies. His breakthrough as a director came in 1979 with The Jericho Mile, a prison drama also produced for TV.

The lead role was played by another TV veteran, Peter Strauss, star of the international TV hit Rich Man, Poor Man. For Strauss, the character of lifer Larry Murphy who was sent down for the murder of his father, was an exceptional chance to get rid of the stereotype of the fabulously rich pretty boy of Rich Man, Poor Man.

changing reels

Due to the 16mm film format, about halfway through the film, the screen will fade to black for one minute in order to change reels.
