Blu-Ray News #103: Hell Drivers (1957).

Directed by Cy Enfield
Starring Stanley Baker, Herbert Lom, Peggy Cummins, Patrick McGoohan, William Hartnell, Sean Connery, David McCallum

Cy Enfield’s Hell Drivers (1957) gets my vote as one of the all-time coolest movies to ever come out of the UK. It’s a hard-boiled story of corruption in the shipping business, with Stanley Baker and other blazing through the British countryside in some really bitchin’ trucks — all in gorgeous B&W VistaVision. Of course, Baker and Enfield would get together again to do Zulu (1964).

This is a terrific action movie. And it’s coming to Blu-Ray from the British label Network Releasing on February 20 with a slew of extras. If you find out if this is Region Free, please let me know! Highly, highly recommended.

Oh, what’s The Heart Within?

    Great news! That blurb on the poster ‘EXCITING’ 4 times, getting larger each time is not an overstatement. Very exciting movie.

    Stanley Baker was always good and Patrick McGoohan virtually steals the film. Look out for a young Sean Connery too.

    Network puts out great quality prints so this should be a real doozy.
