Albert Finney is a great actor as can be seen in his performance in BIG FISH. Two of his best works are still missing on dvd. SHOOT THE MOON and RICH IN LOVE. Both are MGM titles I believe held by Warners.

Looker.

Well, not the best, but hey. I have a legitimate Japanese VCD of this film, and a VHS copy.

And UNDER THE VOLCANO, a great performance in a movie directed by John Huston. Finney was even nominated for Best Actor. Sadly, no DVD. Universal is still sitting on this one.

Under The Volcano and Shoot the Moon are both crying out for release.

How about a little love for Two for the Road...which would make a great Fox Studio Classics release (or perhaps an Audrey Hepburn mini-box set with How to Steal a Million.)

Charlie Bubbles is another Finney film from the 1960s that fans should see... but I don't know if it's that likely a candidate for DVD.

Also Gumshoe, just for fun.

I'm really looking forward to The Dresser, which comes out April 6th.

I for one would like to see him in the BBC adaptation of Kingsley Amis' THE GREEN MAN, which I thought was both funny, scary and touching when it ran on A&E years ago.

Best,
Scott

I remember that! Very entertaining. I'd love to see a dvd of that too. Seemed like A&E was showing a lot better stuff back then, before they became the Biography/Crime channel.
