In 1988, Martin Brest directed the highly beloved and critically lauded Midnight Run from a screenplay by George Gallo. The film starred Robert DeNiro as Jack Walsh, a bounty hunter who was enlisted by bail bondsman Eddie Moscone to bring accountant Jonathan “The Duke” Mardukas back to Los Angeles.
