About The Italian Job in brief
The Italian Job is a 1969 British comedy caper film, written by Troy Kennedy Martin, produced by Michael Deeley and directed by Peter Collinson. It tells the story of Charlie Croker, the leader of a cockney criminal gang released from prison with the intention of doing a \”big job\” in Italy. Its soundtrack was composed by Quincy Jones, and includes \”On Days Like These\” sung by Matt Monro over the opening credits, and \”Getta Bloomin’ Move On\” during the climactic car chase. Lead actor Michael Caine is among its singers. The film has inspired the charity event The Italian Job which has taken place annually since 1990. It involves Minis and other vehicle types featured in the original film, driving from the UK to northern Italy and back, visiting Grand Prix circuits, historic Italian cities and the locations in Turin. The popularity of the film has led to parodies and allusions in other films and productions, including a 2003 remake, a reference in The Simpsons episode ‘The Italian Bob’ and a re-enactment of the Mini Cooper car-chase in the MacGyver episode “Thief of Budapest”. In June 2019, stunt drivers in red, white and blue Coopers recreated parts of the movie’s famous car- chase around Turin at the grounds of Mini’s Oxford factory. The event has raised nearly £3,000,000 so far, and has raised more than £2,500,000 for children’s charities so far.
It is the first annual event to be held at the Mini factory in Oxford, and will take place on the same day as the 50th anniversary of the first Italian Job film. It will be the first time the Mini Coopers have been used in the event, and the first Mini Cooper S will be on display at the Grand Prix circuit in Florence, Italy, on June 25, 2019. It has been organised by the Italian Mini Cooper Association to raise money for children’s charities in Italy and around the world. The original Italian Job was released in 1969, and is still being shown in cinemas today. It was released on Blu-ray and DVD in the UK and the U.S. on November 14, 2013. It costs £10.99. The movie is available on DVD, Blu-Ray and Blu- ray, as well as on CD and cassette, for a total of £16.99, plus £1.99 in UK p&p and £2.50 in Italy, and £3.50 elsewhere in Europe. The UK version of the Italian Job has been released on DVD on November 25, 2013, and on DVD in Europe on November 26, 2013 and in the U-S. and Germany on November 27, 2014, and in Australia on November 28, 2014. It also has a UK release on DVD and CD on November 29, 2015 and in France on November 30, 2015.
