"We have an injured rabbit also"

"There's a maniac on the roof. Shoot him off. Shoot to kill"


Classic. :D :D :D

Watched this again last weekend. Oh I do love this film. Great soundtrack too.

...and the chap on the motorbike who always whizzes back and forth in a cloud of dust. (even funnier once you realize the whole road is about one block.)

...and not to forget the crackin' lass with the webbed toes!

...or the "therapist" hired to verballly abuse his patient.

All classic.

I was in the airport the day they filmed in there. Sadly, through some editing error I never made it onto the big screen.

Despite all that, still a classic.

Especially the debate on the preference of a Rolls over a Ferrari for carrying sheep.

Anyone in that part of the world in the 70's saw this stuff in real life!

Ooooh, that film....from round a headland comes a JetRanger (with the right sound for once) and the camera zooms out to reveal...Stella...watching him go out of her life...

I love Stella.

Is when that sea green Jet Ranger helicopter, arrives on the shoreline. Burt Lancaster? as the chief of the oil company, who is mad keen on astronomy.
Best part that Denis Lawson ever did. Then Mr Knopler and his guitar sound track.
