We Say:

The film that made Aston Martins stars of the silver screen long before Bond was the scene. The convoluted plot is somewhat overshadowed by the excellent 'racing' scenes filmed on Italy's magical roads. Alongside the DB3S and DB2/4s there are Mercedes 300SL Coupes, Maseratis, Ferrari 380 Monza, 250 GT and 250MM, Lancia Aurelias and loads more all in action, and all in colour.

Watch it for the cars but enjoy it as a great period film as well. The cast is excellent and unlike many films from 'back in the day' it's pretty fast paced and genuinely enjoyable.

For a long time this film wasn't available on DVD or even VHS so here's your chance to catch up with this little gem of a film.

They Say (Sleeve copy):

This taut, industrial espionage thriller is set in the world of Sports Car racing and tells the story of an attempt to headhunt an Italian car designer, which ends in theft, corruption and murder.

Warren Ingram (James Robertson Justice) hires O'Donovan (Stanley Baker) to persuade a top Italian car designer to join his company. When the plan fails O'Donovan breaks into the Italian factory and steals the blueprints for a new fuel intake system which results in a guard being fatally shot. O'Donovan goes into hiding while Ingram decides the best way to get him out of Italy.

In an attmept to get O'Donovan over the border into Switzerland Ingram unites him with his racing team led by ambitious racing driver Bill Fraser (Anthony Steel). However, Fraser's girlfriend (Odile Versois) discovers the plan and attempts to thwart Ingram with dramatic consequences.

Directed by Ralph Thomas and produced by Betty E. Box, the motor racing scenes along the roads of Italy are exciting, dramatic and beautifully filmed in Eastman colour.
