    Five Steps to Danger Blu-ray Review
    [​IMG]


    A cat-and-mouse thriller turns interestingly into a Cold War espionage tale in Henry S. Kesler’s Five Steps to Danger, a 1957 independent production which is the latest remastered thriller in the Classic Flix line.

    Thanks for the review. I have always found Sterling Hayden to be a very dull actor and won't be picking this up. Ruth Roman is in a following release - Down Three Dark Streets, which is a much better film.

    I'm pleased to report that we provided the primary source documents to ClassicFlix to insure the correct aspect ratio!

    I hope it's a good one because it is one of my rare pre-orders.

    Well it's not super tense or action-packed but it is intelligently written and features one of the very first theatrical-film utterances of the term "CIA," so it carries minor historical significance and is a must-have for fans of Cold War movies.

    Sounds like a good blast from the past.

    excellent review and everyone interested in FILMNOIR should buy this and other ClassicFlix releases . A really top quality label that has entered a genre that nobody else bothered about .

    I admire ClassicFlix and really appreciate what they are doing to bring these films to us in the best possible presentation. I've got about half of their recent output with more to come, but Five Steps to Danger is a film I've never seen. I like Cold War intrigue/thriller themes in general, even when presented in a somewhat melodramatic or even hackneyed way. I would hope this might be at least as good a film as Atomic City for instance. I'll soon find out for myself.
