Special Features: Commentary by Film Historians Alain Silver and James Ursini, with Audio Interview Excerpts of Director Edward Dmytryk; Featurette "Crossfire: Hate Is Like A Gun"

Years of police work have taught Detective Finlay that where there’s crime, there’s motive. But he finds no usual motive when investigating a man’s death by beating. The man was killed because he was a Jew. “Hate,” Finlay says, “is like a gun.” Robert Young portrays Finlay, Robert Mitchum is a laconic army sergeant assisting in the investigation of G.I. suspects, and Robert Ryan plays a vicious bigot in a landmark film noir nominated for five Academy Awards®, including Best Picture. Edward Dmytryk (Murder, My Sweet) directs, draping the genre’s stylistic backdrops and flourishes around a topic rarely before explored in films: anti-Semitism in the U.S. Here, Hollywood takes aim at injustice...and catches bigotry in a Crossfire.

Im getting this one for sure. I wonder how they decide what title they decide to upgrade ? Why not The Narrow Margin or Clash By Night ? Maybe they are still coming ?

Nice cover art. Day one purchase for me.

Too bad they didn't include the SUSPENSE radio play of CROSSFIRE.
Robert Young, Robert Mitchum, and Robert Ryan all recreate their screen roles.

Warner Archive seems to be on a Robert Mitchum spree. We've had Blood On The Moon, Holiday Affair and Rachel And The Stranger recently. As he's a special favorite of mine, I'm delighted.

It looks like March 16th is going to be the release date based on Amazon's link that hasn't gone live yet.

Anyone named Robert is bound to be drawn to its triple-threat cast.;)
:laugh: Yeah, it's weird seeing the top three male actors in the movie named "Robert".
And if you were British and wanted to purchase this Blu, how many "Bobs" would this disc be worth to you?:cool:

BTW, "Crossfire" gets a definite Day One from me. :thumbs-up-smiley:

The devil you say ... lets turn to Webster

Meanwhile, we should probably be reviewing the situation regarding Crossfire ;)
