Robbery (Region B)

Type: New Blu-Ray

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 High Definition 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...
