- Outlaws: Our Favourite Films Inspired by True CrimeIt's got to be Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, the 1969 film with Paul Newman and Robert Redford in the title roles. Brilliant soundtrack with Sach Distel singing Raindrops keep Falling on my Head; a strong woman's part with Katharine Ross playing Etta Place. Lots of laughs on the way to the ultimate showdown in Bolivia, filmed as a memorable freezeframe. I loved it when I was 14 and I still watch it when it is shown again on TV.
- Outlaws: Our Favourite Films Inspired by True CrimeI nominate Dance With A Stranger, the 1985 film directed by Mike Newell. It tells the story of Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in Britain. The film stars Miranda Richardson and also features Ian Holm and a young Rupert Everett. Miranda Richardson gives a first class performance, superbly evoking tragic 50s glamour. The screenplay was by Shelagh Delaney, author of kitchen sink classic A Taste of Honey.
- Outlaws: Our Favourite Films Inspired by True Crimei nominate American Gangster. Loved this movie, such great acting from Russell Crowe and Denzel Washington. The crime world is not glorified, it is recognized in a film about the horrors and struggles of life as a heroin kingpin in Manhattan. Life for Frank (Denzel Washington) becomes one full of riches, but this success doesn’t last very long. With the end of the Vietnam war, his smuggling opportunities have vanished. Ace Movie!
