FILM CLIPS

Some clips from four of my favourite films as listed in the book.

 

Action films

The Great Escape - If you have not seen the original film, these clips will make you want to watch it. A great John Sturges film:

The Dirty Dozen  -  Incredible performance by Lee Marvin as Major Reisman but in my view, John Cassavetes was the star:

and finally,

The Magnificent Seven - Fantastic performances by so many brilliant actors and another truly great film by John Sturges:

The amazing Charles Bronson (pictured) appeared in all three.

 

Other film

Best choreography ever in a film (in my view). It took Carol Reed the director, three weeks to shoot this one song for Oliver -  

Consider yourself
