My local video store here in Auckland has been selling a number of classic films at bargain prices lately. According to my mate who works there, there are a lot more coming up, mainly from the Warner Bros. and MGM catalogues.

This is just one of my favourite films, I love the opulence of the hotel and I think the acting is just great

Bullitt (Steve McQueen, Robert Vaughn, Jacqueline Bisset, Robert Duvall)

I hate to say it of such an esteemed film (and one with McQueen in) but I find it boring.

Get Carter (Michael Caine, Ian Hendry, John Osborne, Britt Ekland)

Love this more every time I see it.. altogether "you're a big man, but you're out of shape". and for anyone who's not seen it, how many fingers can you spot on the drinker in the pub scene near the beginning

Les Parapluies is in my top five all-time favourite musicals. Heartbreakingly beautiful.
Haven't seen The Bad Sleep Well or Drunken Angel, and apart from Lee Marvin (and the horse) I'm not really a fan of Cat Ballou.
Your other choices are spot on.

Just bought Katharine Hepburn 100th Anniversary Collection (Morning Glory / Undercurrent / Sylvia Scarlett / Without Love / Dragon Seed / The Corn Is Green). E35 on amazon......prob not a 'bargain' but money well spent for me! These are the more difficult ones to find I think and to have them all in one collection is great. Not a  Philadelphia Sotry or Bringing Up Baby in sight! Only ordered it yesterday so cant wait  for it to arrive - I sens a sick day coming on ;)

I really, really hope you like it. Of the first wave of gangster films this is my favourite. I can watch Edward G till the cows come home and there's one of my absolute favourite scenes of all time in this, the acting when he's in the bosses house is just phenomenal

I started Les Parapluies, but just wasn't in the mood at the time (tired and not up for reading the subs or being sung at). You were right about Cat Ballou it didn't hold up to my childhood memories. Still Lee Marvin rocks.

One of the greatest actors never to win an Oscar.
I watched the film as soon as I got home, and really really loved it.

Meet the man who stole his Oscar in the year the Academy confirmed their sheer idiocy and didn't even nominate Eddie G, even when Double Indemnity got 7 other nominations.

Dear old Barry was such a downright loveable character, though. And he did manage a few very good performances, e.g. The Naked City, And Then There Were None.
