During its heyday, the film noir genre of the 1940’s and 1950’s tended to take place in urban settings with cynical looks on life and love, among other things. Desert Fury, released in 1947, represents a unique departure from many of these conventions; not only was it shot in Technicolor, the story is a melding of a few noir elements with those of melodrama, crime, and western thrown in for good measure. Long unavailable on home video for years, Kino unveils the movie on Blu-ray for its home video debut from their deal with Universal.
