The Italian Job 55th Anniversary Collector’s Edition

The Italian Job 55th Anniversary Collector’s Edition

Celebrate the 55th anniversary of the iconic classic THE ITALIAN JOB when it arrives for the first time on 4K Ultra HD™ in the UK on June 3, 2024 from Paramount Home Entertainment. The Collector’s Edition will include both 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray™ discs, with a theatrical poster, production notes, and collectables including a sticker sheet, art cards and more.

Originally released on July 25, 1969, THE ITALIAN JOB has entertained audiences for decades. A hallmark of the crime caper genre, Peter Collinson’s timeless classic tells the story of an English motley crew who attempt a gold heist in Turin, Italy. Michael Cane’s portrayal of the eminently quotable gang leader, Charlie Croker, endures as one of the all-time iconic British performances and a staple of the charismatic, cockney con-artist motif. With an intricate plot, comedic one-liners and an assortment of 1960s Mini Coopers meeting their demise through an array of impressive stunts, THE ITALIAN JOB is an allrounder which continues to charm and excite.

Bonus content included on the Blu-ray disc is detailed below:

In this furiously fast-paced action-comedy, Charlie Croker (Oscar® winner* Michael Caine) is out of jail and on the make with an ingenious plan for the heist of the century. Aided and abetted by top criminal mastermind Mr. Bridger (Noël Coward), Charlie sets off with an ace team and three very special cars to lift a major stash from under the noses of the Turin Polizei. Featuring one of the most incredible car chase sequences in movie history, and a true cliffhanger of a finale, THE ITALIAN JOB is an essential classic caper.
