Trailer for The Border.

Academy Award-winner Jack Nicholson stars in this gripping drama of a man torn between his career and his conscience. As a border guard involved in drug smuggling along the Rio Grande, Charlie Smith (Nicholson) has crossed the line many times. But when he decides to clean up his act and help unite an "illegal" woman with her baby, he runs afoul of his corrupt department, his greedy wife (Valerie Perrine) and a ruthless neighbor (Harvey Keitel) in this action-packed suspense-thriller.

The Border is one of Hollywood's long line of films that received an alternate ending after its original ending was seen as a bit of a downer. The original ending had Charlie Smith (Jack Nicholson) successfully blow up the border patrol headquarters, which resulted in a prison sentence.
