Italian cult film from Pegasus

UK budget label Pegasus have a few nice films coming, unfortunately at least two of them seem to be full screen transfers...

Casablanca Express (Sergio Martino, 1989)
Jason Connery and Francesco Quinn star alongside screen legend Donald Pleasence in this adventure thriller following the Allied attempt to transport Winston Churchill to Casablanca via train during the midst of World War Two. Despite the best laid diversion plans, news spreads that Churchill is aboard the train and it is quickly captured by a crack group of German paratroopers intent on kidnapping him and delivering him to Hitler in Berlin. A daring rescue attempt must be made if the lives of the civilian passengers and that of the British Prime Minister are to be saved.

Attentato ai tre grandi (Desert Commandos, Umberto Lenzi 1967)
As Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin prepared to meet at the Casablanca Conference in the midst of World War Two, a crack troop of Nazi assassins were making their way slowly through the African desert with only one objective - to kill the 'Big 3'. Disguised as British commandos, the men must avoid detection, repel hostile locals and survive the harsh surroundings if they are to complete their mission and return home alive.
Starcrash (Luigi Cozzi, 1978)
The entire galaxy is in peril and infamous space-smuggler Stella Star, the greatest star pilot ever to command a vessel, is its only hope. The evil Count Zartharn from the League of the Dark Worlds has constructed a weapon of limitless power capable of destroying anything in its path. Stella Star and her loyal crew must navigate the darkest corners of the solar system to find the Count's hideout and bring his reign of terror to an end. Originally released the year after 'Star Wars' and with a 'Barbarella' budget, this piece of cult cinema is a sexy space classic and a must see for all sci-fi fans. With the addition of a John Barry soundtrack that makes this DVD a collectable classic.
