Split -- Three people all claim to be the same person, but none of them are able to prove their identity. They realize that a certain anti-psychotic medication will resolve their dispute, as it will prove that two of them are mere illusions. Unfortunately, there s only one pill left. Their argument about who should take the pill turns violent resulting in one of them getting shot. Still, the victim manages to swallow the last pill. When the medication takes effect, the other two disappear proving he s the real deal. Problem is, he discovers he s shot himself. Aw, hell.
Jim Brown heads an all-star cast in The Split (1968), about a heist planned during an L.A. Rams game.
After staging real-world encounters with Ernest Borgnine, Jack Klugman, Donald Sutherland and Warren Oates (as Klinger, Kifka, Negli and Gough) planner Gladys (Julie Harris) explains why heist-man McClain (Jim Brown) has brought them together, in The Split, 1968, also starring Gene Hackman.
Following credits in which he gets off the bus somewhere on the Pacific Coast Highway, Jim Brown (as 'McClain') meets unusually big-haired Julie Harris (as 'Gladys') then his ex-wife Ellie (Diahann Carroll), setting the emotional backdrop for the grim all-star caper The Split, 1968.
The L.A. Coliseum is the target of a crew of daring thieves led by the implacable McClain in this neo-noir adaptation of Richard Stark's "The Seventh." Jim Brown (as McClain) heads the all-star cast that includes Gene Hackman, Ernest Borgnine, Donald Sutherland, Julie Harris, Diahann Carroll, Jack Klugman, James Whitmore and Warren Oates (whew!) as the criminals and cops that inhabit the world of "The Split." While McClain's meticulously planned heist goes as planned, the crew starts to fall out after a psycho landlord and a crooked cop decide to stake a claim to the loot. Strikingly shot by Burnett Guffey (Bonnie and Clyde), "The Split" ups the ante with its iconic locations, splendid sixties fashions and full-on funky score by Quincy Jones with contributions from Sheb Wooley, Arthur Prysock and Billy Preston. As a footnote for the faint of heart, it is worth noting that "The Split" was the first movie to earn an "R" rating!
