The artwork for the "This Gun for Hire" movie poster is really stunning. I have the original movie poster hanging on my wall, and people always comment about it. Its a poster that not only movie poster collectors, but everyone really enjoys.

Any help would be appreciated!

Could anyone help me out with the password?

I have tried various combinations around, with no result other than getting an error message.

Help would be much appreciated!

Thank you in advance

Xapy Nono, check your files, 1 or more files must cause problems, try to unpack the movie and check which file is bad, and just re-download, if you copy and paste the pass, just try to type it manually, if you do it manuallt, just try to copy and paste

You are the first person who has problems with this movie, problem must be on your end...

It seems that the source of the problem is the use of 7zip to unpack. It is the very first time I meet this problem, but after having re-downloaded the files, downloaded another movie, typed manually and pasted the password, I thought of using IZArc instead of 7zip and it works!! Apologies for the trouble and again, thank you for this blog, it is really great!!!
