“The Story of G.I. Joe is a masterwork whose sum is far greater than its modest parts.” – Library of Congress

Embark on an unforgettable journey through the harrowing yet heartwarming landscapes of WWII with The Story of G.I. Joe. Directed by William A. Wellman and based on the true-life experiences of renowned war correspondent and columnist Ernie Pyle, this cinematic masterpiece immerses you in the camaraderie, courage, and sacrifices of the brave soldiers of the Company C, 18th Infantry.

Through the lens of Pulitzer-winning Pyle, portrayed with unparalleled depth by Burgess Meredith, witness the everyday grit and bravery of the foot soldier as they navigate the perils of combat in the Italian campaign. Joining him is the incomparable Robert Mitchum in his breakthrough role as Lieutenant Walker, whose leadership and unwavering dedication to his men inspire hope amidst the chaos of war.

The Story of G.I. Joe authentically portrays the camaraderie and bond between soldiers, a timeless tribute to unsung heroes who fought and bled for freedom. Experience the raw emotion and gritty realism of this war drama, beautifully restored in high definition. It's more than a movie; it's a testament to the triumph of the human spirit.

I got it in my inbox today and ordered it immediately. One of my favorite films, and something I've been waiting for a long, long time. The other day I was re-reading Agee On Film and this was one of the few releases from 1945 he was totally enthusiastic about. I wondered when it was going to show up on Blu. And here it is. This was Robert Mitchum's only Oscar nomination, I believe.

Mitchum's only brush with Oscar.

What a great movie. I just watched this Ignite & Corinth restoration on Prime. I assume the Blu-ray will be slightly better!
