    I've never seen this one. The couple of reviews I read are fairly middling, but it's darn near worth a shot based on that amazing cast alone. I'm always up for a caper flick as well, so I'll probably drop coin on this. Would love to hear thoughts from anyone here who's seen it.

    The Good Die Young
    Directed by Lewis Gilbert
    Starring Laurence Harvey, Stanley Baker, Joan Collins, Robert Morley and Gloria Grahame

    Blu-ray/DVD release on 20 July 2020, and on iTunes and Amazon Prime on 3 August 2020

    Boasting a stellar cast that also includes Gloria Grahame (The Bad and the Beautiful), Joan Collins (Cosh Boy) and Robert Morley (The Battle of the Sexes), this compelling crime picture is presented in both its original theatrical version and in an extended export cut (Blu-ray only), originally intended for international audiences.

    Amoral aristocrat Miles Ravenscourt (Laurence Harvey, Room at the Top) plots a daring robbery to settle his gambling debts in this taut, tough thriller played out on the shadowy streets of post-war London. Enlisting the aid of washed-up former boxer Mike (Stanley Baker, Zulu), ex-GI Joe (Richard Basehart, Moby Dick) and US airman Eddie (John Ireland, Red River), Ravenscourt sets out to plan the perfect heist. But is there any such thing as a sure thing?
