    I’m glad Fox is treating this film well on blu ray!!

    I remember seeing a French dubbed version whose title translates to The Four Thugs. I also owned years ago LP of the soundtrack whose title was How To Steal A Diamond which I was used in the UK.

    I need to find a good copy of the soundtrack.
    How did it never get issued on cd???

    The isolated score track included on the BD - while not the same as a CD soundtrack - sounded fantastic. I had a lot of fun listening to it as I was writing the review.

    Now if we could only get hold of the soundtrack that Murch (Ron Leibman) and Ma (Charlotte Rae) drooled over in the garage scene!

    Westlake (and Stark) was one of my favorite authors and always loved his Dortmunder series. Been a long time since I've seen this film, so glad to hear the great audio/video rating!! Will be grabbing it soon.

    Pretty much my favorite caper movie. Day one purchase, and have already watched it twice (once with the excellent commentary)

    I have a feeling that out of all the TT discs I’ve seen this year that The Hot Rock will be the one I revisit first and most often. It just feels compulsively rewatchable. The filmmaking and performances seem effortless in the best possible way.

    Yeah. I was looking at the $30 price tag for solo or $30 for the hot rock. I’m thinking I’ll watch the hot rock more as I really have grown to love the film.

    Waiting for a sale at the moment. Or Santa....as I’ve texted him my wishes.
