3.  Straight Time [DVD] [1978] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] DVD ~ Dustin Hoffman
The list author says:
  "Movie version of Edward Bunker's great novel 'No Beast so Fierce'. Top notch acting all round; screenplay differs from novel which actually softens its impact. Should've been leaner & meaner."

Villain [DVD]
4.  Villain [DVD] DVD ~ Richard Burton

5.  Seven Ups [DVD] [1973] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] DVD ~ Roy Scheider

7.  Year of the Gun [DVD] [1991] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] DVD ~ Andrew McCarthy

Fear Is The Key [DVD]
8.  Fear Is The Key [DVD] DVD ~ Barry Newman
The list author says:

Hell Drivers [DVD]
9.  Hell Drivers [DVD] DVD ~ Stanley Baker

Phoenix [DVD]
11.  Phoenix [DVD] DVD ~ Ray Liotta
The list author says:

52 Pick Up [DVD]
13.  52 Pick Up [DVD] DVD ~ Roy Scheider

3.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Robbery [DVD]
14.  Robbery [DVD] DVD ~ Stanley Baker
The list author says:
  "Now on DVD, but not widescreen... Almost a 'how-to' in pacy moviemaking as well as a fluid but fictional re-enactment of the Great Train Robbery."

4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (33 customer reviews)

Hickey and Boggs (REGION 1) (NTSC)
15.  Hickey and Boggs (REGION 1) (NTSC) 
The list author says:
  "Culp and Cosby from I-Spy as tough-guy private-eyes? Actually it works pretty well and if I say Walter Hill wrote the script, you'll know there's dead bodies aplenty! Surprisingly dark & moody."
Out of stock

16.  Across 110th Street [DVD] [1972] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] DVD ~ Anthony Quinn
