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
