    At last I can replace my Laser Disc copy! (Still have BOB on Laser too).

    Hope they have some decent extras on it.

    I seem to recall this thread being on the otherside of the square ;)

    The definative blueprint as to how to make a quality action film.

    I'll have to get a copy of this as I still vaguely recall my dad taking me to see it - a saturday special, I add as I'm not quite that old! But more than that, it's a classic in every respect. Once seen never forgotten.
    And what's wrong with a silent stabbing than a 'silenced' gun which makes more noise but less viewer/realism effect and mess - Mister Muscle not in the kit bag for sure.

    Excellent news about Where Eagles Dare. Along with 633 Squadron, these are Ron Goodwin's finest theme tunes, I think.

    Slightly off topic, but does anyone remember a film starring Anthony Quinn called 'The Secret Of Santa Vittoria'. It used to be a regular 'bank-holiday' film like Guns of Navarone, but I haven't seen it on TV for years. Would be great if it came out on DVD... :)
