The Cassandra Crossing/The Domino Principle Blu-ray

Posted October 7, 2013 05:18 PM by Webmaster

Shout FactoryShout Factory will bring two classic thrillers to Blu-ray in January: George P. Cosmatos' The Cassandra Crossing (1976), starring Sophia Loren, Burt Lancaster, Ava Gardner, Richard Harris, and Martin Sheen, and Stanley Kramer's The Domino Principle (1977), starring Gene Hackman, Candice Bergen, and Richard Widmark. The double-feature Blu-ray release will be available for purchase on January 7th.

The Cassandra Crossing

When a terrorist infected with a deadly viral plague boards the Stockholm to Geneva express train, he exposes all aboard to infection. 1,000 passengers are automatically doomed to death when the man placed in charge of the operation - Colonel MacKenzie (Burt Lancaster) - takes the decision to divert the train and crash it into oblivion at the Cassandra Crossing. However, the plan is thrown into doubt when passengers begin to make mysterious recoveries...

The Domino Principle a.k.a The Domino Killings

Stanley Kramer (Inherit The Wind) directs Gene Hackman (The French Connection) in this pulse-pounding, action-adventure thriller. Roy Tucker is in prison for killing the sadistic husband of a woman he loves. When he is promised his freedom in exchange for an undetermined favor, he agrees. It will be the second biggest mistake he ever makes.

The Cassandra Crossing is an excellent thriller. A+ performances from Richard Harris, Sophia Loren, Burt Lancaster, Ava Gardner, and Martin Sheen, among others. Day one for me.

More Gene Hackman on Blu is always a good thing! I'll gladly add this to my collection (for a decent price)!

THE CASSANDRA CROSSING is for those who don't mind watching a film that has 90% of its run time taking place on a train, much like THE RUNAWAY TRAIN, NARROW MARGIN. This is an exciting thriller regardless of its plot holes. Just sit back and enjoy the ride.

I haven't seen THE DOMINO PRINCIPLE, but Gene Hackman stars and he's an A-class actor, very often likable to watch. So, this one is on my purchase list.

''The Cassandra Crossing'' should be paired with the remake of ''Narrow Margin'', that would be a terrific double bill.
Shout Factory seem to be getting into the old ITC films well so dare I hope for ''Green Ice'' I recently got the German release of ''The Legend of The Lone Ranger'', another ITC picture and it looks and sounds very good indeed. Anyway ''Cassandra'' will be day one for me.

I can finally retire my awful non-anamorphic DVD of Cassandra Crossing. Top Jerry Goldsmith score. Rejoice! Never seen the Hackman but looks excellent.

I LOVE suspense/mystery movies set on a train, my favorite (there's just something about the energy; throw in romance, and maybe some comedy, and I'm in heaven.) Really wish Narrow Margin was out on Blu-ray, but this looks good.

The Cassandra Crossing, IMO, is an underrated thriller...a little plodding at times but otherwise quite good.

I saw The Domino Principle years ago....frankly, I remember it being god-awful, incoherent at times, and with some laughable moments. I remember thinking it was like Stanley Kramer had seen The Parallax View and Executive Action, and wanted to make something in the same vein.
