While it would be the subject of a number of films following its conclusion, not many films about the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) were made during the conflict. Only two movies were turned out by Hollywood and William Dieterle’s Blockade (1938) was the only one to pick a side of the conflict (the Republicans of Spain’s Popular Front government vs. General Francisco Franco’s Nationalists) to depict. The first to make it to theaters was a Grand Hotel styled drama under the helm of James P. Hogan – a veteran from the Silent Era – The Last Train from Madrid. Previously released on MOD DVD by Universal, Kino has licensed the film for its Blu-ray debut.
