Book Description

20 July 2001 0713486821 978-0713486827
Thirty years ago one of the most popular British films of all time was released. The Italian Job is remembered by everyone who has seen it, if not for Michael Caine's unforgettable line "You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!" - which led to the trademark impression of him - then for the literal cliff-hanger of an ending. Consistently in the top 100 films of all time and voted fourth best British film of all time, The Italian Job story is covered here from start to finish: how it was made, by the people who made it.

Fans of 'The Italian Job' have had to wait a long time for a book which chronicles the making of what is now a 'cult' film in the annals of British movie making. The author has hit the nail on the head with a fact filled book, which will delight those with an interest in this 'Mini-fest'. How mean it was of British Leyland not to support the production by only letting the film company have a handful of Minis. How the 'trio' were made to drive through the gridlocked streets of Turin, through the sewers and over the rooftops makes for fascinating reading. The 'on set' illustrations are pretty good as well!
All aspects of the movie's making are covered, as well as the publicity campaign and why 'The Italian Job' failed to be a success in the USA. Contributions from many who were involved in the making of the movie, including Sir Michael Caine, bring the story to life. A real must for British film fans everywhere, and don't forget 'You are only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!'

5.0 out of 5 stars THE definitive Guide. 27 Sep 2001
By A Customer
It is about time someone has written a book about one of the best loved British films. the Making of the Italian Job has got a fantastic array of pictures some taken by the cast and crew on set and have never been seen before. the text is clear, precise and easy to read. it includes most of the cast and crew's views and memories about making the film, and it even has a brilliant interview with Sir Micheal Caine. Buy it, it is a fasinating read.
