Network Distributing To Release THE FLYING SCOT on DVD on 19th January 2015


Lee Patterson (Another World, Reach For The Sky) is the man with the audacious plan and fellow Canadian Kay Callard (They Who Dare, Top Floor Girl) is his glamorous accomplice in this taut heist thriller of 1957. Scripted by Carry On stalwart Norman Hudis and based on a story co-written by Danger Man creator Ralph Smart, The Flying Scot (U) is released on DVD on 19th January 2015, RRP £9.99, from Network.

Dissatisfied with the small profits shown by his petty crimes, Ronnie Cowan attempts to pull off the most sensational robbery of all time. He has learned that the Bank of Scotland periodically sends half a million pounds in one-pound notes to London for destruction, and the banknotes are transported on the famous passenger train, The Flying Scot. Cowan assembles a trusted transatlantic team and a brilliant, seemingly foolproof scheme is put into action.

Special features:

• Alternate title sequence
• Instant play facility

The Flying Scot (also known as The Mailbag Robbery) is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

I love practical effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Yakuza Zero and Mafia III.
