Subject: RE: BS: 'Blow the bloody doors off':American tra
The 'Western Line' came from 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid'
The Original (in 'The Italian Job') came after a van is blown to pieces "You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!")
In BC&TSK They blow an entire luggage car to pieces and 'The Kid' asks "Sure you used enough Dynamite, Butch?".

Incidentally, having remade both 'The Italian Job' and 'Get Carter', what's next? A remake of Zulu?, 'The Ipcess File'? 'Funeral in Berlin'? 'Alfie'? (The seem to want to work through chunks of the Caine canon<1>)
