From Amazon.co.uk

This sprawling epic of bloodshed and excess, Brian De Palma's update of the classic 1932 crime drama by Howard Hawks, sparked controversy over its outrageous violence when released in 1983. Scarface is a wretched, fascinating car wreck of a movie, starring Al Pacino as a Cuban refugee who rises to the top of Miami's cocaine-driven underworld, only to fall hard into his own deadly trap of addiction and inevitable assassination. Scripted by Oliver Stone and running nearly three hours, it's the kind of film that can simultaneously disgust and amaze you (critic Pauline Kael wrote "this may be the only action picture that turns into an allegory of impotence"), with vivid supporting roles for Steven Bauer, Michelle Pfeiffer, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, and Robert Loggia. --Jeff Shannon

Product Description

Both versions of the classic gangster film 'Scarface': the 1932 original and the 1983 Brian de Palma re-make. In 'Scarface' (1932), Tony Carmonte (Paul Muni) is a ruthless mobster intent on building his empire in prohibition-era Chicago. Fighting off all opposition, he manages to climb to the top of the heap, but thanks to an obsession with his own kid sister, his success will prove shortlived. Produced by the legendary recluse Howard Hughes and directed by Hollywood great Howard Hawks, this is often regarded to be the best of the classic gangster films, setting the standard for all subsequent efforts. 'Scarface' (1983) is the re-make of the 1932 classic. Up-and-coming gangster Tony Montana (Al Pacino) arrives in Miami as a Cuban refugee. With his friend Manny (Stephen Bauer), Tony carries out a hit on a politician, earning him the gratitude of drug dealer Frank Lopez (Robert Loggia). Tony rises rapidly in the 'organisation', but courts disaster when he becomes involved with Lopez' cocaine-addicted wife, Elvira (Michelle Pfeiffer).

5.0 out of 5 stars A Piece of Cinema History 12 May 2005
Format:DVD
Quite simply the greatest movie ever made. You have your Godfather's, Goodfellas, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull....All epics and fascinating and brilliant by their own right. But Scarface has it ALL! Brilliant script, brought to the screen in a fantastic fashion. The acting is second to none and the number of one-liners that you repeat to yourself over and over and endless. It's a defining moment in history this film. And it's got Al Pacino! Yes it's a movie glorifying the underworld, gangsters and drugs, but like any good book you need to read between the lines...This film really does portray morales and principles of life that anyone can relate to, that truly makes it even more special than just how good a film it is. A MUST SEE FOR ANYONE! You cannot die until you've seen Scarface!
"Say goodnight to the bad guy!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding box set 25 Dec 2003
By C. Minnick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
3 discs in the box, 2 for the 1983 Scarface, 1 for the 1932 Scarface. I had seen the 1983 film many times, so I dived right into the 1932 version before I watched the 1983 version. Wow. While the 32 film is much shorter, it is every bit as good as the 83 film. Both films deal with the same basic thing, dealing in illegal drugs in fierce competition areas, booze in Chicago during Prohibition, and coke in Miami in the late 70s and early 80s. The first movie was more of less a propaganda movie, but an excellent piece of propaganda. The difference between the 2 movies is the 32 film asks, "What is the government doing about this?" while the 83 film just shows the excess of it all. Great set, and a great gift from a very good friend of mine.

By Dana Jordan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Keepsake cards (HUGE - almost the size of the box), a money clip, and 2 dvds...very worth it. I've been a Scarface face forever but never got to see the original....until now. =) Thanks to this product! It also comes with the Scarface we all know and love too though...

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS HOT!!! 3 Aug 2003
By Crip cuzz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Al pacino acted so good in Scarface, the cuban accent, the clothing design, the 1980's music, it was all good. The features that the Scarface Deluxe Gift Set has are awesome!! It has lobby cards, scarface (1932), red carpeting when you open it, and a gold monogrammed money clip, and of course 1983 Scarface. Every thing is re-edited to make this the bomb!!! The Scarface Anniversary edition has deleted scenes, the rebirth of scarface, acting scarface, creating scarface, Scarface: tv version, and trailers, wut the hell more do u want when u have all this??? Yo I recomend this for all the gangster movie lovers.

5.0 out of 5 stars MY ONLY COMPLAINT... 27 Sep 2003
By "dooks21" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Why did they have to include this ridiculous "Def Jam: Origins Of A Gangsta" featurette with this set and tarnish this classic gift collection? What is the relevance between cheesy commercial rap artists and a classic installment of modern cinema and furthermore, how do these overpaid fools really consider themselves in association with the likes of Pacino's character in this film - since when are corny pop artists and international organized crime lords in the same boat?? In my personal opinion, it is almost blasphemous! This is the sort of thing I would expect to find on a bad VH1 special, but why should the Def Jam label even be in association with this film, in which they had no direct involvement in? Whoever decided the inclusion of such a horrible feature would be a good idea is a moron! It angers me to see how such exploited pop-culture trends are invading and raping every single medium of creative art. If commercial pop rappers think Scarface is a cool movie, good for them... have someone ghostwrite a cliche chart-topper about it. I dont want to see these idiots on my dvd!!! Couldnt they have gotten someone of significance, perhaps Pacino or someone relative to the man whom the production of this film was based on, to speak about "the origins of a gangsta"... no lets get Ja Rule - he likes this movie!
