Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid/ The Good, The Bad and the Ugly/ The Magnificent Seven Triple Pack DVD

| DVD

Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid:The Sundance Kid is the fastest gun in the West, his sidekick Butch is a dreamer, always planning that bigger, better bank raid. But things are getting tougher and soon the accident-prone anti-heroes decide it's time to head south and disappear into legend.Winner of 4 Oscars including Best Screenplay for William Goldman and Best Song ('Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head') and Best Score for Burt Bacharach.The Good, The Bad And The Ugly:The Good, The Bad And The Ugly, written by Age-Scarpelli, Luciano Vincenzoni and Sergio Leone is the... third and last western in Clint Eastwood's spaghetti trilogy. Director Sergio Leone substitutes for the upright puritan Protestant ethos, so familiar in Hollywood westerns, a seedy cynical standpoint towards death and mortality, as a team of brutal bandits battle to unearth a fortune buried beneath an unmarked grave. Joining Clint, clearly The Good, is the irredeemably Bad Lee and the resolutely Ugly Eli Wallach. The complete plot of bloodshed and betrayal winds its way through the American Civil War, filmed to resemble the French battlefields of World War One, to end in the climatic Dance Of Death. Arguably the quintessential Italian Western, this 1966 film boasts a fine Ennio Morricone score featuring a main theme that reached No. 1 in the world's pop charts.The Magnificent Seven:Yul Brynner stars as one of seven master gunmen who aid the helpless farmers of an isolated village, pitted against an army of marauding bandits in this rousing action tale based on Akira Kurosawa's classic 'Seven Samurai'.Released in 1960, John Sturges' masterpiece garnered an Oscar nomination for Elmer Bernstein (for Best Score) and launched the film careers of Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn and James Coburn.

Triple bill of classic westerns. 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid' (1969) stars Paul Newman and Robert Redford as Butch and Sundance, a pair of outlaws finding it increasingly difficult to make a living in the Wild West. With big business constantly extending its influence, and the law following hot on its heels, the everyday business of robbing banks and trains is becoming more and more of a strain. Butch and Sundance decide to cut their losses and head for a new life in Bolivia with their friend, Etta Place (Katharine Ross). However, on reaching their destination, things, if anything, seem worse - they now have to rob banks in which people only speak Spanish. 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly' (1966), Sergio Leone's classic spaghetti western, is the final part of the 'Dollars' trilogy that brought Clint Eastwood to Hollywood's attention. During the American Civil War, the paths of three loners, Joe (Eastwood), Tuco (Eli Wallach) and Setenza (Lee Van Cleef), cross as they search for the grave of Bill Carson, said to be home to a hidden fortune. As the war intensifies, however, the treasure seekers find themselves drawn into a battle that dwarfs their own mercenary pursuits. 'The Magnificent Seven' (1960), a re-make of Akira Kurosawa's 'Seven Samurai' (1954), features performances from Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Yul Brynner and Robert Vaughn. A small Mexican village, terrorised by the cutthroat Calvera (Wallach) and his bandits, comes together to hire a team of seven mercenaries to expel the vile interloper. The seven, led by Chris (Brynner), set about the job of training the terrified townfolk in the art of killing before preparing to mete out their own brand of justice.
