Robert Duval is a cop long story short he commandeers a Fishbowl to get away from a gang so there is good scene of the chase that ensues.

Haven't seen this movie in years. The bus I think was a MABSTOA 8400 series with busoramas, "Go by bus to the Coliseum" ads.

I don't know about the chase scene but Badge 373 is rated as probably among the worst movies ever made! (according to the critics).

My all time favorite film is the 'original' The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951) which, by the way, has a couple of great scenes with Old Looks in the background.

Interestingly, despite the fact that it was made nearly sixty years ago, the special effects were pretty good.

Some great youTube shorts can be seen at;

Yeah the film itself isn't highly regarded but there are scenes of NY in the 70's. The chase is worth seeing though, any bus fan should see it. It's a riot
