Synopsis
Double Academy Award winner Michael Caine has rarely looked cooler as the well dressed heavy, attempting to uncover the facts behind the death of his brother, in this hard-boiled thriller. the film tracks Caine as he becomes embroiled in the sinister underworld of crime and pornography. John Osbourne stars as the flesh peddlers` ringleader, whilst sultry Bond girl Britt Ekland sizzles as Caine`s London girl. Get Carter`s powerful combination of violence and corruption, with its dark portrayal of England, especially Newcastle, signaled the end of the sugar-coated 60`s ushering in a more cynical style of filmmaking.

Interestingly when you order this you get confirmation that you have bought "1 x Britt Ekland Get Carter (1971) £2.84"
Funny, I always thought Michael Caine was the star in this movie, but Tesco must have a different slant on this!
Fantastic spot anyway. "You're overweight and out of condition......"
Worth watching just to see glimpses of how the Toon and Gateshead looked 35 years ago.

Yeah, great film and great score which is by Roy Budd, both of which I have.

Also featuring an appearance by a very young Alf Roberts (Bryan Moseley) too who gets chucked off a multi storey car park (if I remember correctly).

Apparently, the director would only film it during overcast weather...for extra grim north east effect.

Forget the recent Vinny Jonesesque spate of British gangster films...this is the best British gangster film ever made.
