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 -
