Thunderbolt and Lightfoot

Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (1974)

Ending / spoiler

Thunderbolt and Lightfoot successfully break into the vault and steal millions of dollars; however, during the getaway, Goody's coat gets caught on the trunklid when he jumps in the trunk. 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. 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. 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. Thunderbolt and Lightfoot stumble across the schoolhouse where the money from the first robbery was hid; the money was still there. Thunderbolt buys a Cadillac convertible and picks up Lightfoot, who is acting strangely; Red's kick has caused an injury to Lightfoot's brain. Lightfoot dies in Thunderbolt's car, and Thunderbolt drives away with the corpse next to him as the credits roll.
