A-Z #104: The Italian Job

You can pick up hundreds of DVDs for a round-pound each - it doesn't matter. It's never about quantity, it's about quality. A-Z is my way of going through my collection, from A-Z, and understanding why I own the films ... or you can tell me why I should sell 'em

#104 - The Italian Job

Why did I buy it?

Only a fiver. And its 'a British classic!'. So they say. I had not seen it at the time and seemed like as good a time as any to purchase it.

Why do I still own it?

I've only watched it a couple of times, and I like it: Michael Caine is brilliant, Noel Coward in his final acting role and even Benny Hill! I always feel like I'm not as obsessed with it as others. The only thing I ever watch is the mini-chase at the end leading to the flawless cliffhanger ending. I guess, the fact that I want to watch a single sequence time and time again means it is worth keeping on that point alone.
