It's far from pristine, but I finally have a video release of this fine film that I can watch without thinking about the horrible video presentation of past releases across various video formats .  IMO, this is one of the most underrated war films ever made and I'm so happy to have a Blu-ray of it in my film library.  And, in it's OAR of 1.85.  One of Anthony Mann's finest with a cast of Robert Ryan, Aldo Ray, Robert Keith, Nehemiah Persoff, Vic Morrow, James Edwards and LQ Jones.

 

Thank you Olive!

What a great cast.  I will definitely check out this film.  I love WWII movies from the fifties and sixties.  I see Vic Morrow is in the cast.  I loved him in the Combat tv show.

Thanks for the insight.  Hardly a surprise that this one trumps the substandard PD/bootleg transfers that have been circulating for quite a while, but it's always good to get confirmation.

 

This one's still in the mail.  Looking forward to checking it out

I started another thread in the International DVD & BD area of the forum in which I received the Region B Blu-ray of Pork Chop Hill today.  It's even better PQ-wise than Men in War and in its OAR of 1.85.  The BD releases of Circus World, 55 Days at Peking showed up today too.  So many blu-rays to watch and not enough time to watch them all right now.

Nuts, I forgot this was released on 4/15.  I would have included this in my (pre-) order at Barnes & Noble.  At least I was notified today that B&N has "Sleep, My Love" waiting for me.

 

Funny, though, when I looked at Amazon for "Men in War", yesterday and again today:  the title was released on 4/15, just two days ago, and already Amazon is only acting as a fulfiller for a 3rd party.  I wonder why.  That seems odd.

Dave,

 

Amazon has it with 10 left in-stock.  When you pull up a title's page, always look to the right side to see if Amazon is listed too.

Why have I never heard of this film? (Or don't remember) I love WWII films and have the entire Combat! TV series.

It's a Korean War film.

They call the Korean war the "Forgotten War".  I guess we know why now.

My dad got polio during his service in the Korean War and was a disabled Veteran until his death, so perhaps I blocked that war out.
 

He was a captain in WWII who landed at D-Day+6 and helped liberate St. Lo, France. But he's most 'famous' in WWII for starting the first Coca-Cola stand in France. No doubt the French were not happy about it (but the GI's were).
