About this item
"Best Of United Artists Gift Sets, Volume 2" includes: "The Great Escape" - In 1943, the Germans opened Stalag Luft North, a maximum-security prisoner-of-war camp, designed to hold even the craftiest escape artists. In doing so, however, the Nazis unwittingly assembled the finest escape team in military history - brilliantly portrayed here by Steve McQueen, James Garner, Charles Bronson and James Coburn - who worked on what became the largest prison breakout ever attempted. One of the most ingenious and suspenseful adventure films of all time, "The Great Escape" is a masterful collaboration between director John Sturges ("The Magnificent Seven"), screenwriters James Clavell ("Shogun") and W.R. Burnett ("Little Caesar"), and composer Elmer Bernstein. Based on a true story, "The Great Escape" is epic entertainment that "entertains, captivates, thrills and stirs" (Variety). "Rocky" - Nominated for 10 Academy Awards and winner for Best Picture, it's the film that inspired a nation! Audiences and critics alike cheered this American success story of an "everyman" triumphing over all odds. Featuring a dynamic musical score, a thrilling fight sequence and four Oscar - nominated performances, this rousing crowd-pleaser will send spirits soaring. Fighting for love, glory and self-respect, "Rocky" scores an exultant knockout! Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) is a Philadelphia club fighter who seems to be going nowhere. But when a stroke of fate puts him in the ring with a world heavyweight champion, Rocky knows that it's his one shot at the big time - a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to go the distance and come out a winner! "West Side Story" - This "brilliant" (The New Republic) film sets the ageless story of Romeo and Juliet against a backdrop of gang warfare in 1950s New York. Directed by Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins and scripted by Ernest Lehman. A love affair is fated for tragedy amidst the vicious rivalry of two street gangs - the Jets and the Sharks. When Jets member Tony (Richard Beymer) falls for Maria (Natalie Wood), the sister of the Sharks leader, it's more than these two warring gangs can handle. And as mounting tensions rise, a battle to the death ensues and innocent blood is shed in a heartbreaking finale. "The Thomas Crown Affair" (1968) - "Every crime has a personality, something like the mind that planned it," says Vicky Anderson, the sleek insurance investigator trying to figure out the intellect behind a bank robbery so stunning it has Boston's finest completely baffled. "The Thomas Crown Affair" has all the dazzling personality of the intriguing crime it portrays. Sophisticated, handsome Thomas Crown has only one worry - what persona he will take on tomorrow. But when the genius rogue pulls off a crime-of-the-century bank heist and finds himself pitted against a nemesis as powerful as he is, his devil-may-care attitude hurls him into an edge-of-your-seat game of intrigue and suspense.
