HE reader Nick Zayas informs that Hulu just put up Joseph Sargent‘s The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3. The whole thing, in other words, is now free and streamable in reasonably decent quality. With “limited commercial interruption,” of course.

The new Tony Scott version with Denzel Washington (in the Walter Matthau role) and John Travolta (“as” Robert Shaw and another villain) won’t be out until 7.31.09.
