Directed by Peter Yates
Starring Stanley Baker, Joanna Pettet, James Booth, Frank Finlay, Barry Foster, William Marlowe

Producer-star Stanley Baker and director Peter Yates turned the real-life Great Train Robbery into a great British heist picture, Robbery (1967). Network will be releasing it on Blu-ray in the UK on June 22. They’re promising a 1.66 transfer from original elements.

Steve McQueen saw Robbery once it made its way to the United States, and Yates ended up directing Bullitt (1968). What Steve saw was a top-notch action film, with astonishing direction and a great script. Highly recommended.
