Today, Thunder in the East. At the start of the 1950’s, Alan Ladd had established himself as one of Paramount’s top actors on their roster with films like The Glass Key (1942), This Gun for Hire (also 1942), The Blue Dahlia (1946), Two Years Before the Mast (also 1946), Whispering Smith (1948) and The Great Gatsby (1949). However, by time Ladd finished work on Botany Bay (1953) in early 1952, his contract with the studio had expired and he would begin free-lancing work as an actor; so, Paramount staggered the release of his final three films – including the aforementioned Botany Bay as well as Shane – of which Thunder in the East was among the trio. Kino has licensed the movie for its home video debut.

Thanks for this review. I don't recall ever having seen this film but it sounds interesting. With that cast and with Hugo Friedhofer and Lee Garmes contributing, I'll buy this disc. I'll certainly keep my eyes open for Jill St. John. I knew she started very young but I didn't know she was in this film.

Thank you for your review as my Blu-ray has shipped to me. I think I've seen this movie once beforehand, but it was more than 50 years ago on television.
