WIN BRITISH CRIME CLASSIC VILLAIN, STARRING RICHARD BURTON AND IAN MCSHANE, ON BLU-RAY – NEWLY RESTORED FROM STUDIOCANAL’S VINTAGE CLASSICS
The latest addition to Studiocanal’s prestigious Vintage Classics Collection is the 1971 gangster drama VILLAIN - fully restored and available on Blu-ray for the first time.
With a script by acclaimed British writing duo Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais, VILLAIN is an intricate and graphically violent British counterpart to Get Carter and The French Connection which foreshadowed seminal 1970s television police dramas such as ‘The Sweeney’.
Vic Dakin (Burton) is a sadistic, gay, East End gangster with a mother fixation, a character loosely based on the notorious Ronnie Kray. For many years he has made a living from running a prosperous protection racket and, so far, has avoided arrest. After being tipped-off about a potential payroll heist, Dakin decides to step up his criminal activities and starts planning the job. He recruits a gang from the criminal underworld, including Wolf Lissner (Ian McShane), his occasional lover. This leads to greater danger and greater exposure with Police Inspector Bob Matthews (Nigel Davenport) watching his every move, determined to finally catch him in the act. For your chance to win VILLAIN on Blu-ray simply answer the following question:
Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais also wrote the script for which Brit crime thriller starring Jason Statham?
A: THE ITALIAN JOB
B: THE BANK JOB
C: THE HATTON GARDEN JOB
