Anchor Bay Entertainment has released "Lion of the Desert" in Blu-ray in the full length version of 2 hours and 56 minutes. The movie staring Anthony Quinn, Oliver Reed and Rod Steiger is now on Blu-ray for the first time. In 1929 Benito Mussolini is still faced with the 20 year long war waged by Bedouin patriots to combat Italian colonization and establishment of the "Fourth Shore". Omar Mukhtar, teacher by profession, guerrilla by obligation, fights against his oppressors and commits himself to a war that cannot be won in his lifetime. The Blu-ray is a big improvement over the DVD adding much more depth created by background objects that include more detail. For the first time I was able to clearly see the women's tongues wiggling when they are making a siren type noise. Video: 1080P/24 Audio: DTS-HD MA Running time: 2 hours 56 minutes Region code: B Highly recommended this Blu-ray can be purchased from Amazon.UK.
