QUIGLEY DOWN UNDER FAST FACTS:
Total Run Time: 120 minutes
Aspect Ratio: Widescreen 2.35:1
QUIGLEY DOWN UNDER SYNOPSIS:
Tom Selleck gives the boldest performance of his career in this "new style, revisionist Western with the panoramic scope of a movie epic" (Los Angeles Times). Fierce gunfights, forbidding landscapes, breakneck chases - all hallmarks of the classic Western - are reinvented in this hard-pounding actioner that "revitalizes the genre" and comes out "a sure winner" (The Hollywood Reporter).
Arriving in Australia with nothing more than a saddle and his prized six-foot Sharps rifle, American sharpshooter Matthew Quigley thinks he's been hired to kill off wild dogs. But when he realizes, instead, that his mission is murder - to "eliminate" the Aborigines from a wealthy cattle baron's land - Quigley refuses and quickly turns from hunter to hunted. Forced to wage a savage war against his former employer, Quigley proves that no one gets the best of a steely-eyed American gunfighter - no one, that is, except the mysterious beauty (Laura San Giacomo, sex, lies, and videotape) who rides by his side and captures his heart.

THE TAKING OF PELHAM ONE TWO THREE SYNOPSIS:
Walter Matthau, Robert Shaw, and Martin Balsam lead an all-star cast in this "gripping and exciting" (The Hollywood Reporter) suspense film based on the sizzling best seller by John Godey.
A gang of thugs who have hijacked a subway train near New York's Pelham Station threaten to kill one hostage per minute. Forced to stall the assailants until a ransom is delivered or a rescue made, transit chief Lt. Garber (Matthau) must somehow ad-lib, con and outmaneuver one of the craftiest, cruelest villains (Shaw) ever. It’s a race against time, and no one knows whether things will end heroically or tragically in this pulse-pounding thrill ride!
