  1. Excellent the towering inferno is my all time favorite movie and despite having it on DVD and recently watching it for the millionth time I will watch it again on Friday night along with the late great Steve McQueen Paul made the towering inferno the best movie ever made

  2. Fourth,
    The Sting is a different studio to the other films that movie network screen. This has been on Showtime Greats previously, the other films that will be shown on Movie Extra are films that normally shown on these channels(Warner Brothers and, Touchstone(Disney) in this case of these 3 films).

    LH, Fox Classics is not wide screen, plus don’t they have ad breaks, during the films/programs that they show also? The Film channels are all widescreen and don’t have ad breaks/interruptions, nor for all of them bar(extra and greats), annoying watermarks.
