    * That's not to say I don't like Omar Sharif as Doctor Zhivago. Just to say Sharif's character has a somewhat different attitude here.

    Henri Verneuil's THE SICILIAN CLAN is such a cool film.

    As far as Belmondo goes, I also really like THE NIGHT CALLER and THE BURGLARS. The latter has a terrific Morricone score too!

    Edit - Actually, I just recalled that Morricone also scored THE NIGHT CALLER, though I don't think it's as good as THE BURGLARS.

    I found Classe Tous Risques (BFI) and Mississippi Mermaid (Twilight Time) available on Blu-ray. Nobody has mentioned Léon Morin, prêtre which is also available on Blu-ray from Kino. Any seen/can recommend that?

    I've always stayed away from that one because he plays a priest and priests in movies bore me unless they're being tortured and degraded by Satan.

    In other words, I'm shallow.
