Below is a list of some of our favorite films on DVD which are not always easy to locate on the Amazon websites (unless you enter the title), as they do not always show up in the various listing/categories, even though they are available. Wherever possible we have linked the listed films to the AMAZON UK and US websites so you can purchase your favourite DVD movies online.
Please Note:
1. US and UK format are not compatible. Region 1 = USA / Region 2 = UK (If you have a multi-regional DVD player than you will be okay purchasing either)
2. Some of the DVD films may have other versions or formats available, (e.g. directors cuts, widescreen etc) be sure to check before making any purchase.
3. If you require Video (VHS), rather than DVD, then check out the 'OTHER FORMATS' heading at Amazon and click on VHS.
4. You can usually order a copy from any of the International stores (ie if out of stock in the UK, order a copy from the USA store.) However they will be in a different format so you will need a multi-region DVD player in order to play them. (see no 1 above)
5. If any of the links say they are out of stock, or only available from sellers - then try entering the title of the film in the search box again at Amazon, as a different manufactures version may be available.

The Adventures of Robin Hood [1938]:
Dashing Errol Flynn is the definitive Robin in 1938's The Adventures of Robin Hood, the most gloriously swashbuckling version of the legendary story. Warner Brothers reunited Michael Curtiz, their top-action director, with the winning team of Flynn and Olivia de Havilland (Maid Marian) and perennial villain Basil Rathbone as the aristocratic Sir Guy of Gisbourne, and pulled out all stops for the production. In glowing technicolour the adventure is set to a stirring, Oscar-winning score by Erich Wolfgang Korngold.


Mutiny On The Bounty [1935]:
A true classic. Gorgeous photography, brought vividly to life in this impeccable transfer, a rattling good story, wonderful performances, and no expense spared on sets and locations. In terms of events it's broadly correct but of course, in keeping with a good adventure story, it presents Bligh as a sour-faced sadist rather that the complex, troubled character he really was. As such, Charles Laughton turns in a performance to relish, perhaps the greatest of his career. This is a good old adventure movie of the very best kind, and a terrific film by any standards.


Apollo 13 (1995):
NASA's worst nightmare turned into one of the space agency's most heroic moments in 1970, when the Apollo 13 crew was forced to return home in a disabled capsule after an explosion seriously damaged the spacecraft and stopped any possibilty of a moon landing. Tom Hanks, Kevin Bacon, and Bill Paxton play astronauts Jim Lovell, Jack Swigert, and Fred Haise. The Apollo 13 crew and mission control race against time to return the damaged spacecraft safely to Earth. Special effects and nail-biting tension make a fitting tribute to the Apollo 13 mission.


The Magnificent Seven (1960):
The beleaguered denizens of a Mexican village, weary of attacks by banditos, hire seven gunslingers to repel the invaders once and for all. The gunmen are cool and capable; Steve McQueen, James Coburn, Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn. The man who brings these warriors together is Yul Brynner. The storytelling is clear and strong, and the charisma of the young guns fairly flies off the screen.


The Great Escape - (1963):
A stirring example of courage and the indomitable human spirit. The Great Escape is both the definitive World War II drama and prison escape movie. Set to Elmer Bernstein's admirable music, this picture is both a template for subsequent action-adventure movies and one of the last glories of Golden Age Hollywood. Steve McQueen gives a career-defining performance as the laconic Hilts, the baseball-loving, motorbike-riding "Cooler King." The rest of the all-male Anglo-American cast, Dickie Attenborough, Donald Pleasance, James Garner, Charles Bronson, David McCallum, James Coburn, and Gordon Jackson. Closely based on Paul Brickhill's book, the various escape attempts, scrounging, forging, and ferreting activities are authentically realized. The climax is given with total conviction, high action and very poignant human drama. Without trivializing the grim reality, The Great Escape thrillingly celebrates the heroism of men who never gave up the fight.
