one of the best
8 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this i well remember. it was later . some years later that it has become a cult favorite. Deighton may not have like it( the movie) but i felt it was one of the great adaptation

a classic. a great movie that parallels the book . am willing also along with many others, i see, willing to paid for it. It will require Granda TV to release it in DVD or some enterprising person. the suspense builds and leaves many questions. Much better than the shoot em up mindless prater that comes out now. A number of fans are waiting for the go - ahead to buy a DVD. it will be a instant best seller. It is better than Soldier, Sailer...etc..

Post 12-07-05

i have obtained the DVD of it .now available. the sound is excellent , better than the original. video is acceptable. three years later . i actually pulled out the DVD last night and started watching it again. strange as i have gotten use to high def and this is plain DVD. the sound is terrific and the nuance is far superior to anything on the market.

i am taking bids and if anyone is near Baltimore or Washington you are welcome to preview for the quality i stated. email me with bids . obviously no copies of this can be made as i suspect that is against the law.
