Editorial Reviews

LOCAL HERO (1983) Burt Lancaster and Peter Riegert star in the wonderfully whimsical comedy of an oil company’s planned buyout of a Scottish seaport. “Genuine fairy tales are rare; so is filmmaking that is thoroughly original in an unobtrusive way. Local Hero is both” (Vincent Canby, The New York Times). SEVEN DAYS IN MAY (1964) John Frankenheimer directed this suspense classic about a military plot to overthrow the government involving a hawkish general (Lancaster), a pacifist President (Frederic March) and the vigilant colonel (Kirk Douglas) who uncovers the plot. EXECUTIVE ACTION (1973) Who killed President John F. Kennedy? Burt Lancaster, Robert Ryan and Will Geer headline a probing and powerful What If? conspiracy thriller scripted by Dalton Trumbo. THE FLAME AND THE ARROW (1950) Flashing his trademark grin and leaping with acrobatic derring-do, Lancaster revitalized the Hollywood swashbuckler with this Robin Hood-like tale.

Nothing to add content-wise to calvinnme's review ('Executive Action' and 'Flame and the Arrow' earn three stars each, 'Seven Days in May' and 'Local Hero' four-plus), but Amazon's specs are wrong. The set actually includes four single-sided picture discs and not two flippers as indicated-- good news for those of us who disdain the latter format.

I bought this set because of Executive Action. I have never placed a lot of faith in conspiracy theorists discussions of the JFK assassination, but having seen this movie when it was first released instilled a small seed of doubt in the Warren Commission report. The rationale of the conspirators, the training methods employed, and the superb acting make this a must see film. The other three films, especially Seven Days In May with Kirk Douglas and Ava Gardner, are the polish that gives this diamond of a set it's 5 star rating (it would have been 6 star if that was an option).

Was looking for a new DVD of Local Hero and see that they are over $70 individually. This set gives me that movie, plus 3 others. Such a deal!

I would recommend this Burt Lancaster movie pack as it is a fabulous collection of Burt Lancaster movies. I saw The Flame and the Arrow when I was 12 years old and to see it again is just wonderful. It has not lost any of the action and thrill I have experience as a boy. For years the action sequence of the circus act and the dancing boy has stayed with me and I have recalled it every now and then. This maybe pure nostalgia but it is really a very good wholesome action movie.

A four film colection with lots of special features worth watching.Local Hero was a good bit of family entertainment though not my faverite on this package
It is a fun and happy film.movie no. 2 The Flame and The Arrow a swashbucling adventure set in northern Italy while occupied by Germany in the middle ages. Not the finest movie of it's type but more than entertaining. This ofcourse brings us to Executive Action, one of the early films in the long list of films talking of the JFK assination. Found the story fun and entertaining with interesting plot points,only real problem is I do not buy into the hole conspiracy thing. A good yarn with a good cast and great preformances also interesting special features.Seven Days In May by far the best film in the colection and is worth the price of the entire set. A screan play written by Rod Serling about a planed military take over of the government by rouge military officers members of the joint chiefs of staff in fact(Lancaster as chairman of the joint chiefs). Have always liked Lancaster beter as a villian and he does not disapoint. Kirk Douglas is a marine corps officer who must stop him while keeping the whole plot secret. a truely great suspence thriller. "This one comes highly recomended."

And the body to go with it, especially when he was younger. The fact that he did his own stunts and was a consumate athlete makes his action films a joy to see. The only action film here is The Flame and the Arrow. He was also an enchanting actor as he aged. My favorite Lancaster film is The Professionals. If you like him as well as westerns check it out. Also if you have an interest in the JFK assination and conspiricy theories Executive Action is a must-see.

i bought this mainly for the movie seven days in may, if you have never seen this movie you do not know what your missing, it is rarely played on television and Burt Lancaster plays the general who believes his way is the only way to save our country from the cold war era Russian Bear, made in the 60's not a lot of people have seen this masterpiece of command decisions vs politicians. you will love this one if your a military minded fan.
