They're both career criminals, there's no going to hospitals for them. He wasn't asking why Thunderbolt didn't take Lightfoot to the hospital after he had obviously died, but during the 18 or so hours between Red's assault on Lightfoot and when Lightfoot was picked up by Thunderbolt. YOU Sir are correct. I doubt that "scene" exists. The owner of the drive-in (where they are hiding after the robbery) spots the coat and calls the police, believing that they were trying to sneak into the movie without paying. Any idea where I might see it? Clearly Lightfoot was in trouble from the start--in the novelization, it's stated that Thunderbolt had seen head injuries in Korea and knew Lightfoot was on his way out. You would think if this version existed ANYWHERE, we could find mention of it or a clip online... That being said, if it does exist I would like to see it, but can't imagine I'd like it better than him driving off WITH Lightfoot. Does Jerry Seinfeld have Parkinson's disease? The film grossed $9 million in rentals on its initial theatrical release and eventually grossed $25 million in the United States, making it the 17th highest-grossing film of 1974. The film is a genre-bending film that blends the road movie, buddy comedy, and the heist film as it explores the friendship between two very different men. Watch the ending again,Lightfoot is clearly dead as Thunderbolt is driving down the road! The 1974 directorial debut of Michael Cimino packs a lot of of subtext into what could have been a standard caper film, albeit one whose final, headlong descent into grimness marked it as a product of its pessimistic era. The police pursue Red until he crashes through the window of the store where he used to work; the security dogs in the store attack and kill Red. I've read this opinion in a few posts now, and I tended to agree, but on further thinking about it I ask myself: Is that so? Contact me | Privacy policy | Join the mailing list | Links. I've never seen this "alternate ending". Continuity mistake: In the scene where Thunderbolt and Lightfoot are in the car with the crazy driver. Lightfoot dies in Thunderbolt's car, and Thunderbolt drives away as the credits roll. Copyright © 2020 Multiply Media, LLC. Written and directed by Michael Cimino, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot is the story about a Korean war veteran who takes in a young drifter to help him pull off one final heist with some old friends. Jeff is in the car, slumped over, all the way to the credits rolling. Not sure. During the ensuing chase, the police shoot Goody, and Red pushes him out of the car to his death; he then knocks out Thunderbolt and kicks Lightfoot in the head before escaping in the getaway car. I just reviewed the final scene, and it's clear that Thunderbolt (Eastwood) doesn't realize the extent of his partner's injuries until it's far too late. He drives off into the mountains with dead buddy next to him. Thunderbolt buys a Cadillac convertible and picks up Lightfoot, who is acting strangely; Red's kick has caused an injury to Lightfoot's brain.

Thunderbolt was released on May 22, 1974. It has come out in this thread that it seems that those who believe they have seen this ending were watching a television broadcast, one of which was in Great Britain. Bridges is clearly in the car. And Sidney Crosby is a cry baby. I think most everybody has missed what the original writer was questioning. It certainly isn't on the DVD release that I have. In the scene right before it, he was but when Clint left the bridge, he wasn't. So the faster you get out, the better it'll be for your ass.
