GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY

Kino Lorber has released the Sean Connery classic, The Great Train Robbery (1978), on Blu-ray. From SAE: "All aboard for runaway action and suspense in this riveting masterpiece from writer and director Michael Crichton. Sean Connery (Meteor/James Bond), Donald Sutherland (Klute/Eye of the Needle) and Lesley Anne-Down (Sphinx/Pink Panther Strikes Again) star in this "spine-tingling and suavely performed" adventure (The Hollywood Reporter) based on history's first train robbery. Stunningly shot by legendary cinematographer Geoffrey Unsworth (2001: A Space Odyssey), this "ingenious" (Variety) and wonderful crime caper delivers mile-a-minute thrills and breathtaking excitement. Connery is Edward Pierce, a master thief who conceives a brilliant plan to steal a fortune in gold bars from a railroad payroll car. But to pull off the most daring heist in history, Pierce must join forces with a safecracker (Sutherland) and his own beautiful girlfriend (Down) in a series of intricately plotted thefts that will test all of their nerve, camaraderie and larcenous skill." I remember really enjoying this film and look forward to revisiting it. Links: Blu-ray website, Amazon. Spy Vibe's current contest ends tomorrow! Enter to win cool vintage prizes. Details here

R.I.P. RICHARD KIEL

I'm sad to hear actor Richard Kiel passed away today. He recently gave me a signed copy of his book in prep to do an interview here on Spy Vibe. I met Richard a number of times over the years and he was always a gentle sweet guy. Like many others, I grew up watching his great performances in The Wild Wild West, The Spy Who Loved Me, and Moonraker. He was sensitive and thoughtful about his roles, and he often brought a lot of heart and spirit to what otherwise might have been two-dimensional characters. His portrayal of Jaws, for example, was so empathetic and popular that he was able to continue over two Bond films- and was voted the best Bond villain in the history of the franchise. Richard was hospitalized over the weekend for a broken leg and had to miss the 007 film fest event with Raymond Benson and Maud Adams. His family has just released this statement: "It is with very heavy hearts that we announce that Richard has passed away, just three days shy of his 75 th birthday. Richard had an amazing joy for life and managed to live every single day to the fullest. Though most people knew of him through his screen persona, those who were close to him knew what a kind and generous soul he was. His family was the most important thing in his life and we are happy that his last days were spent surrounded by family and close friends. Though his passing was somewhat unexpected, his health had been declining in recent years. It is nice to think that he can, once again, stand tall over us all."
