New York Times - 11/23/1988
"...Easygoing and affectionate....[Collins] is good enough to make audiences temporarily forget his career as a pop star..."

Product Description:

Based on the true story of a two-bit burglar who pulls off the heist of a lifetime and then, along with his wife, flees England and the police. Soundtrack features Collins' "Two Hearts" and "Groovy Kind of Love." Academy Award Nominations: Best Song ("Two Hearts").

Plot Synopsis:

Buster Edwards is a member of the legendary gang who pulled off the Great Train Robbery of 1963 -- without even using a gun. In order to escape the police, he and his wife, June, flee with their daughter to Mexico. But even with all his ill-gotten wealth, Buster is unhappy. The Mexicans don't speak English, they eat different food, and the sun beats down on him in a way it never did in rainy, old London. Soon, June can't bear it, and she sails back to England for the comfort of the only life she has ever known. Now Buster, miserable, lonely and far from home, must make a difficult decision. Will he stay on the lam, or follow his heart and go back to his wife in England where he faces certain incarceration'


Production Notes:

  • Estimated budget $7.5 million; shot in Technicolor and Panavision; the film's aspect ratio is 1.85: 1.
  • Based on the Great Train Robbery of 1963. England's Royal Mail train was robbed that year while making the run between London and Glasgow. It is estimated that in today's figures the goods the bandits stole would be worth in excess of $35 million. What truly made the crime legendary was the fact that it was carried out by a group of unarmed men. Only one of the wrongdoers escaped punishment, Ronnie Biggs. He fled to Brazil and has lived in exile there for years. But this is not his story; it's the tale of Ronnie "Buster" Edwards, a member of the gang who made it to Mexico, free and clear, only to return to London to turn himself in years later.
  • Daniel Lopez was the director of photography in Mexico.
  • Phil Collins made his film debut in the 1964 Beatles film "A Hard Day's Night."
  • The British cut of "Buster" runs 102 minutes, while the American cut runs 93 minutes.
