The Great Train Robbery (Special Edition)
Directed by Michael Crichton
All aboard for runaway action and suspense in this riveting masterpiece from legendary writer/director Michael Crichton (Westworld, Coma)! Sean Connery (Goldfinger, The Anderson Tapes, Cuba), Donald Sutherland (Klute, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Crackers) and Lesley-Anne Down (Brannigan, The Pink Panthers Strikes Again, Sphinx) star in this “spine-tingling and suavely performed” adventure (The Hollywood Reporter) based on history’s first train robbery. Stunningly shot by the great cinematographer Geoffrey Unsworth (2001: A Space Odyssey, Murder on the Orient Express), this “ingenious” (Variety) crime caper delivers mile-a-minute thrills and breathtaking excitement. Connery is Edward Pierce, a master thief who conceives a brilliant plan to steal a fortune in gold bars from a railroad payroll car. But to pull off the most daring heist in history, Pierce must join forces with a safecracker (Sutherland) and his own beautiful girlfriend (Down) in a series of intricately plotted thefts that will test all of their nerve, camaraderie and larcenous skill.
