Ron's link is the problem. Once you follow Ron's link to Amazon, click on the "Blu-ray $28.65" button. That will take you to the proper Amazon page, which states the disc will be available tomorrow, May 7th.Hmmm... It says "currently unavailable. We don't know when or if it will be back in stock." Very frustrating.
I was also amazed by the cannon scene. Just one shot almost demolished a building which wasn't even the target.Just saw They Shall not Grow Old on Blu-ray. What an extraordinary film - superb. I may have appreciated this more since I'm a World War I buff.
WWI one of the most devastating, horrific wars in human history; it was the first large conflict to be fought with "modern" weapons (tanks, aircraft, etc.) - but also one that literally paved the way to the world as it is today. I.e., IMHO the events in WW I were the beginnings of modern history.
So, it was very interesting to see this pseudo-documentary film with the voice-overs. Even though the tone(s) of the voices were very matter-of-fact as they described what happened, these stories really illustrated how horrendous the war was. It was also interesting to hear how relatively indifferent the "general public" was to the soldiers returning from the war - at least based on the testimonials towards the end of the film.
One of my favorite "restored" scenes was when the cannon fired near that building, and the noise vibrations?! caused the roof tiles to shake & fall off - thereby emphasizing how intense this noise was. No wonder these noises caused soldiers to go deaf (either temporarily or permanently).
