Saw this for 1.99, I know it's on the first page of plays sale, but then I don't normally look through any of play.com sales as the bargains are few and far between.

This is (in my opinion) the best of the 3 versions of this story. So save yourself the £3 off the price it costs for the new one and get this one. It's a great film.

Seconded as I only thought there was this and the 2009 one?

Even though I religiously go and see every Denzel Washington movie I didn't like his version; the '74 Shaw / Matthau version is far better IMO.

there is a made for TV version. It's on one of the movie channels quite often, 4movies or one of the other free ones.

this one is a brilliant version

Robert Shaw was fantastic in this, cool, collected, intelligent and menacing.

John Travolta's character was just camp and immature in comparison; if you have only saw but enjoyed the remake, you will love this one.

Is this Anamorphic Widescreen?

The American DVD of this I have of this is not, so I don't think it will be

Thanks, for the info. No version seem to be Anamaorphic. Doesn´t really matter though, as it´s in 2.35:1

FYI:
THE TAKING OF PELHAM ONE TWO THREE has been ripped off, imitated, and remade by these moviesSPEED, MONEY TRAIN and RESERVOIR DOGS.

The original is the best. However whilst Tarantino took influence with the colour naming system of his characters in Reservoir Dogs from this film, Reservoir Dogs is suitably different to this film and is an excellent film in its own right. It's also on TV tonight, well worth watching.
