By the 1940’s, director Cecil B. DeMille had long been established as a master showman with films like The Ten Commandments (1923), The Sign of the Cross (1932), and Cleopatra (1934). John Wayne was just emerging as a major Hollywood star following a decade which saw him going from B-movie Westerns into leading man status with the success of John Ford’s Stagecoach (1939). These two distinct Hollywood icons would end up working together for the first and only time with Reap the Wild Wind, a seafaring saga of mid-19th Century America. Previously released on DVD several times by Universal, Kino has licensed the film for its Blu-ray debut.
