Quite fancy Remember the Night.

I wouldn't put a pre-order in in case it's delayed which makes it a pointless purchase this year. You know, Christmas film delayed until January.

It's a pretty good film, in case you haven't seen it before.

I have the limited edition of Midway on it's way. Really looking forward to seeing the three hour extended tv version.

A cracking war film with one hell of a cast.

"Released the same year as Sergio Leone’s The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and Sergio Corbucci’s Django, The Big Gundown (La resa di conti) is a classic spaghetti western. Directed by the great Sergio Sollima (Face to Face, Violent City) this brutal film elevated western regular Lee Van Cleef (Ride Lonesome) to his first ever starring role.

When bounty hunter Jonathan Corbett (Van Cleef) is hired to track down a Mexican peasant (Tomas Milian, in a career-defining role) who has been accused of an appalling crime, he is initially outwitted by the wily bandit. However, the relationship between the two men soon takes an unexpected turn and they team up to take on railroad baron Brockton (Walter Barnes).

With its rousing score by legendary composer Ennio Morricone, and its politically charged screenplay by Sergio Donati (Once Upon a Time in the West) and Franco Solinas (The Battle of Algiers), The Big Gundown has earned its reputation as one of the greatest and most influential Italian westerns.

This individually numbered Limited Edition includes three versions of the film – the US theatrical cut, the extended US cut, and the original 110-minute Italian version – along with a fascinating selection of new and archival extra features, a poster, and an 80-page book."

PH's last 6 releases have all been hard box LEs. A few reasonably priced 'standard' LEs would be welcome also...

Well it's a good Christmas film to add to the list along with the likes of The Bishop's Wife, It Happened on 5th Avenue and It's a Wonderful Life.

It Happened on 5th Avenue is my favourite of all. Just utterly charming.

I've only watched the film once but I thought it was great. It came in a box set with three other old Hollywood films, 4 Film Favorites: Classic Holiday Collection 2, and I can definitely recommend that one.
