Still a Top Watch - but get the Bluray Version
on 21 July 2015
This film is getting on for 50 years old now but still holds up well today. It caused a real stir when it came out in 1967 due to several violent scenes but from there on things became more and more graphic and the floodgates were open.
The acting from all concerned is top class, the film won all the top awards, nominations were flying in all directions. The film’s budget of $2.5 million was turned into a worldwide profit of $70 million.
I bought the ordinary DVD and I have to say that the quality of picture is poor – I wished I’d bought the Bluray version as this film is top notch.
Beatty & Dunaway have starred in many top films but I think it’s true to say that they both fell short of reaching the very top.
Like any film, this one takes a few liberties with the story lines but overall it contains most of the known facts. It's a first class watch and every bit as good, as I recall it from all those years ago.
