Reviews

Box set containing four classic movies starring Steve McQueen. In 'The Great Escape' (1963), during World War Two, a collection of hardened Allied prisoners are kept in an 'escape-proof' German camp. Led by the 'Big X' (Richard Attenborough), the men formulate a plan for a mass breakout, digging three tunnels - Tom, Dick and Harry. The team behind the escape includes a near-blind forger of passports (Donald Pleasance), a claustrophobic tunnel-digger (Charles Bronson) and the independent American 'Cooler King' (McQueen). With men like that on their side, how can they fail? In 'The Thomas Crown Affair' (1968), self-made property developer Thomas Crown (McQueen) masterminds a successful billion-dollar bank job, even though he has no need of the money. Beautiful insurance investigator Vicky Anderson (Faye Dunaway) begins to look into the case and instinctively picks Crown out as the major suspect. Thus begins an intriguing cat-and-mouse game, with Crown treating Anderson to a fine old time - beach buggies, gliders, kinky chess games - as the pair try to simultaneously seduce and outwit each other. In 'The Magnificent Seven' (1960), a small Mexican village, terrorised by the cutthroat Calvera (Eli Wallach) and his bandits, hire a team of seven mercenaries to expel the vile interloper. The seven are led by Chris (Yul Brynner), and they set about the job of training the terrified townfolk in the art of killing before meting out their own brand of justice. In 'Sand Pebbles' (1966), in China, 1926, the US gunboat San Pablo cruises the Yangtze river on a peacekeeping mission. New crew member Jake Holman (McQueen) causes friction when he insists upon looking after the San Pablo's engines himself, rather than leaving the hard labour to the Chinese helpers. Holman ruffles more feathers when he falls in love with an American missionary (Candice Bergen), and as the political climate becomes more and more volatile, he begins to question the validity of the American presence on the river.
