4.0 out of 5 stars "The Capone Investment (1974) ... Ian Kennedy Martin ... VCI Ent. (2010)", 12 Sep 2010
This review is from: Capone Investment [DVD] [1974] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Southern Colour Productions presents "THE CAPONE INVESTMENT" (July 1974) (149 mins/Color) --- Six full episodes has us on the edge of our seats with character building drama --- Locations and some fine acting give this release some teeth which dialogue plays an important part --- First rate production with some of the best British actors during that time, good show!

Special footnote, actor John Thaw had great success as Detective Inspector Regan in "The Sweeney" (1975) - also with "Inspector Morse" (1987), Thaw was yet again cast as a policeman, but this time a more cultured character than Regan --- Morse was Thaw's most popular and long-running project --- It established him as British television's most bankable actor, and during the 1990s he had many other starring vehicles --- Thaw was a favorite of film director Richard Attenborough, who cast him in "Cry Freedom" (1987) and "Chaplin" (1992).

Under some good direction and an outstanding cast with a copy that is good for viewing --- Check out "The British Are Coming" is the three minute sum and pieces of various British Films coming attractions to view on VCI, other than that no other bonus or extras --- Highly recommend for all the collectors of "British Films" from the early '70s with good drama characterization --- Take note of the hair styles and clothing that is clearly the '60s and '70s, and made casual living the uniform of the day from then on.

Total Time: 149 min on DVD ~ VCI Home Video #8497 ~ (8/31/2010)
