Robbery
Robbery
  • Description

    Based on the planning and execution of criminal cause celebre the Great Train Robbery, this taut, meticulously researched drama stars Stanley Baker as a crime boss undertaking the heist of his career – with Frank Finlay and Barry Foster among the gang he assembles, and James Booth as the dogged detective who's determined to catch them all.

    Co-produced by Baker and directed by multiple-Oscar-nominated Peter Yates, Robbery is a classic of British Film – exceptionally scripted (winning a WGGB Award for Best British Screenplay), powerfully acted and sporting a legendary score by composer-arranger Johnny Keating. It is presented here as a brand-new restoration from original film elements in its original aspect ratio.

    Having successfully pulled off a daring jewel heist, Paul Clifton prepares to hit a mail train heading south from Glasgow. Several difficulties stand in his way, however, not the least of which is the police – who are hot on his tail and already know he's planning something bigger...

    SPECIAL FEATURES:

  • Brand-new interview with Michael Deeley recorded for this release
  • Cinema: Stanley Baker – an archive interview from 1972
  • German film The Great Train Robbery
  • Waiting for the Signal: The Making of Robbery – brand-new documentary featuring interviews with cast and crew
  • Behind-the-scenes footage – archive news footage of the filming at Market Harborough
  • Image gallery - posters, lobby cards, memorabilia and production stills
  • Original campaign guide, exhibitors' manual and flyers in PDF format
  • 32 page booklet by film historian Sheldon Hall

ABOUT THE RESTORATION:

Previously released on DVD from an old 1.33:1 (4:3 pan and scan) transfer, Robbery has now been scanned to 2K resolution from the 35mm original negative and restored in its correct theatrical aspect ratio (1.66:1).

The restoration involved grain management, both automated and manual removal of film dirt and damage, and correction of major instability, warping and density fluctuations. The image has been fully colour corrected. While conforming, it was found that a ten second interior shot of the police car during the opening chase sequence had been cut from the DVD release. This has been re-instated for this restoration.

The original 35mm magnetic audio elements were unfortunately in a very poor condition and unable to be used due to deterioration, so the existing mono soundtrack has been restored.

    Film Robbery

    I had been looking for this film for a while and found it on another site but it was twice the price I paid for with zavvi. Great service, quick delivery, can't fault it.
