    A bit massive, though. The new "Monaco" is even bigger. What I liked was the hat the Porsche team manager wore. Any idea what it is called? Cotton trilby, perhaps? I'd want it without the Porsche logo, of course.

    Sean Connery? Good film, gritty realism.

    The Outlaw Josey Wales, finest Western ever made, Clint Eastwood at his best and the rest of the cast were superb notably Chief Dan George.

    I saw that many many years ago at university. As part of our drama course we were shown lots of film versions of Shakespeare's plays, some good, some less good, and some, like Joe MacBeth, that were just plain weird. There was another film of Macbeth made a few years back which was set on a Birmingham housing estate (and titled 'Macbeth on the Estate', so it does what it says on the tin).

    Rod Stewart?

    Edit: It's just occurred to me that's who you were probably referring to.

    Really good movie, read the novel by Davis Grubb too, Mitchum just great in this as were the child actors, the cellar and river scenes, very much a poetic masterpiece.

    Dunno if I'd count it as 'great' or 'classic', but for sheer entertainment 'Big Wednesday'.. best surf film I've seen.

    The Third Man, for many reasons, mainly the photography.

    I quite liked 'Breaking Away', another odd late night/random find.
