The Release of "Highlander" in UK -On this day 1986

OK, I'm prepared to take a bit of abuse for this being today's 'On this day', but let's be honest how many Hollywood films can you name which start off with a 16th Century Scottish clan battle? I don't think you'd even need to have all your digits to be able to count them on one hand. It also finishes with an RAF jet tearing along a glen so I think on that basis it can be included here.

Shean Connery'sh Shpanish accshent leaves a lot to be desired, as does Christopher Lambert's Scottish accent. But forget the ridiculous plot and the appalling sequels and enjoy some of this 1980's movie thanks to YouTube...
