Look inside this book

By Matthew Field

This year marks 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.   

Foreword by Sir Michael Caine and an introduction by Oscar-winning producer Michael Deeley.

Presented in a special Collector's Edition jacket and slipcase, this book will also be signed by a variety of personalities associated with the film.

Signed byMichael Deeley, Robert Powell, David Salamone, Hazel Collinson, Don Black and, of course, Matthew Field

The Italian Job - Collector's Edition

The book is well produced and very high quality. The photos, diagrams and type face make the book a pleasure to read. The content is well researched and adds a great deal to the background of the making of the movie. Highly recommended for aficionados of 'The Italian Job'

Iconic film, iconic book

The book does justice to a great British film, everything you wanted to know and more and a work of art in its own right.

I've loved this film since I first saw it over 40 years ago and this book is a wonderfully presented 'making of', written with love and honouring the legacy of the timeless classic. Having the opportunity to get a hold of such a book commemorating The Italian Job was like a dream come true and being able to purchase a signed copy was just icing on the cake. Thank you to Matthew Field for writing it and thank you to Porter Press for making it a reality. If you're a true fan of The Italian Job you need this book, you will not be disappointed.


This book has everything you ever wanted to know about The Italian Job. The production, the actors, the name it this book has it all for the fan of this film. I first saw the film when it opened in New York City and went back to see it two more times. So having this well researched book with all the interviews and photos is a dream come true. If you are a fan of the film. This is a absolute buy!!!
