Blu-ray News #55: Fixed Bayonets! (1951).

Fixed Bayonets poster

Written and directed by Sam Fuller
Starring Richard Basehart, Gene Evans, Michael O’Shea, Craig Hill, Skip Homeier, James Dean

Sam Fuller’s terrific tale of the Korean War, Fixed Bayonets! (1951), is coming to Blu-ray later this year from Kino Lorber. While there are plenty of reasons why this is such a good movie — the outstanding performances and Lucien Ballard’s camerawork are two key ones, it’s got a little footnote in movie history as the first thing James Dean appeared in. Highly recommended.
