About this deal

As usual, the wordy one will examine the text of a famed novel later adapted to film, which I will review.

So good, Gerald and Les want to show their appreciation to their chief enforcer by sending him on a holiday to Spain. MGM agreed to a reasonable but below-average budget of 750,000 (there is some dispute as to whether this figure refers to dollars or pounds) [2] for the production. In Sight and Sound, Tom Milne said the film was well-constructed and had good characterisation, but lacked the mystery and charisma of the earlier American crime films it attempted to emulate. He doesn’t go at it shouting and swearing, because he’s got nothing to prove – all the hoods in Scunthorpe know who he is, and most of them fear him.VG/EX means that the item's sleeve is in Very Good condition and the disc is in Excellent condition. Perhaps, the blustery overcast sky is fitting for this post since it highlights a particularly iconic film from the 70s — a decidedly British one.

Hodges had also previously worked on current affairs programme World in Action, the arts programme Tempo and a 1968 children's television serial, The Tyrant King, and all these past experiences informed his approach to his film debut. it was very influenced by Mike Hodges who has a very good eye for setups and he of course conferred with his operator and myself, but he influenced all of us, and much of the good look is due to him, I confess. I’ll have to think on if there’s a movie that captured fully a character through the visual medium as well as the source written material.

It is available from the Warner Archive Collection as a Made on Demand (MOD) DVD-R or a download, with the same extras as the 2000 release, although with only two trailers and this time in 16:9 ratio.Even by the time of filming, the houses around here were starting to begin their demolition, and this is evident in the film as the Land Rover travels up the street. A book can really express such things (and a character’s inner thoughts) so much more easily and with more time (obviously). In October 2010 the critics from The Guardian newspaper placed the film on their list of "Greatest Films of All Time", placing it at number 7 in the 25 greatest crime films. I was asked this while I was reading DEVIL IN A BLUE DRESS last month since I’d already seen the film.

All pointed down towards the Tyne and overlooked the imposing Dunston Power Station, which was situated on the other side of the river. He telephones Kinnear (who is in the middle of a wild party at his home), telling him that he has the film, and makes a deal for Kinnear to give him Eric in exchange for his silence. It was simply a part of the long process of exploiting MGM's back catalogue in the run-up to Christmas".

Ekland was cast as the leading lady of the film, as she was a prominent sex symbol of the time and would have already been familiar to US audiences through her work in The Night They Raided Minsky's and Stiletto.

The fact that he’s sleeping with Gerald’s wife, Audrey, and that they plan on someday running away together with a lot of the brothers’ money, doesn’t have Jack concerned. We don't get to see much of the course but we do see the finish of one race in front of the paddock and the start of another race.Michael Caine appears as Cliff Brumby, in what Elvis Mitchell described as "a role that will increase regard for the original", speculating that "maybe that was his intention".
