Allycat, that BPI stuff with CD Wow affected CDs only, NOT DVDs.

Oh, and apparently you can pick up Dirty Harry SE for 5.99 in Blockbusters in the UK.

How much does a Clint DVD go for now ?

I never usually pay more than 6 for a back catalogue Clint DVD. Virgin Megastore seem to constantly be running offers where you can pick up old Clint titles cheap (there's currently a 5 for 30 offer, and I saw a number of titles for 4.97 at my local Asda recently (including The Enforcer).

I picked up the 2 disc Unforgiven for 4.99 from a company called Splash a while back, but they have since gone bust (probably because of prices like that!). However, Virgin and HMV regularly have it for 9.99 in their offers which is a good price considering the extras.

Pricestorm.com have a load of titles for 5.99 with free delivery, but I've never used them myself.

And I managed to pick up Hang 'Em High from Cd Wow for... 3.49!

So it's worth shopping around, unless you're in a desperate rush for a title. And I've got a big stack of DVDs that I haven't got round to watching anyway!

Hmm, forgive me for not getting too excited about this magazine, but with the exception of the first issue, it does seem to be pretty expensive.

You can regularly pick up Clint's Warner output for around 5 in the UK - at the moment Virgin have a 2 for 10 offer that has most of the titles.

I even picked up the 2-disc version of Unforgiven for 4.99 on-line last month (although that company has now gone bust.)

That said, I am looking forward to R2 versions of Tightrope, White Hunter etc - if the series gets that far. Quite often these things fold before the end of the intended run due to a tail off in sales. And they are not included in the 10 films mentioned on the website.

Sorry to be so negative!  :)

Do these shows get broadcast here in the UK.. (home of the rugby world cup)

Does anyone know where/when. Is it on Sky ? I'd hate to miss it.

I think they are shown on the "Performance" channel on Sky Digital.

Doesn't the book also make some "interesting" revelations about Eastwood regular Bill McKinney and the filming of "that" scene in Deliverance? ;)

didn't last long in the uk  :'(

i never got to see it again

According to boxofficemojo.com, it made $2,537,805 (1,494,345). Pretty disappointing considering the amount of publicity that Clint did for it over here.

Mind you, to put things in perspective, Blood Work took $266,386 across the UK.

Didn't the actors agree to work for scale or something?

As someone who's been a "lurker" around here for a while now, I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for posting their tales about this great event.

Although I am insanely jealous of you all it is great to know that there is still hope for me to meet Clint someday.

I used to be quite obsessive about Clint when I was younger, but drifted away when he was releasing the likes of True Crime etc. However, buying the Dirty Harry films on DVD rekindled my interest, and I am really quite excited about seeing Mystic River, so much so that I intend to go along on the first day. I haven't done that since In the Line of Fire 10 years ago, when I went right after school!

So thanks again. This board has done a great job of reminding me why I loved Clint in the first place.
