The Self Preservation Society - 50 Years of The Italian Job
Author: Matthew Field
2019 marked the 50th anniversary of the British cult classic movie The Italian Job. Loaded with sixties swagger, and famed for its endlessly quotable dialogue and one of the most impressive car chases in movie history, The Italian Job is the ultimate celebration of ‘cool Britannia’.
Based on more than 50 in-depth interviews with the cast and crew, and lavishly illustrated with hundreds of never-before-seen photographs and production documents, this new book takes a fascinating, behind-the-scenes look at how the film made its way to our screens.
Awarded the prestigious Motoring Book of the Year by the Royal Automobile Club. Judge Mick Walsh from Classic & Sports Car said “A remarkable celebration of this cult movie classic that author Matthew Field has researched passionately since his teenage years. Bloody brilliant!”.
Foreword by Sir Michael Caine and an introduction by Oscar-winning producer Michael Deeley.
