    I won't pretend to know. Obviously, I know of the Ripping Yarns series, but was a bit too young for it at the time. Now, thanks to the magic the t'interweb, I can see that it is on that there YouTube as well. I'll add that to the watch list and let you know!

    Bullitt.
    One of the great things about movie steaming services is you can revisit old favourites as well as catching up on the new stuff. Being an old petrolhead, I always used to like Bullitt for the iconic car chase, the soundtrack and McQueen at his coolest. But, watching it last night I was also struck by its progressive, sympathetic treatment of women and black Americans. There is a wonderful moment where McQueen and Georg Stanford Brown, playing a black hospital surgeon, exchange knowing looks when the oily Robert Vaughan tries to get a different doctor assigned to the case. Its a fleeting moment but it says so much, especially now our senses our heightened to the BLM issue. My respect for McQueen is even higher. Its hard to believe this was 1968 but perhaps its a reveal of the sympathies of those making the film. Its a moment 50 years ahead of its time.

    No Time To Die.

    I believe French movie tradition has the appropriate term.
