Olive Films: Two Classic War Films Heading to Blu-ray

Posted March 3, 2014 04:28 PM by Webmaster

Olive FilmsOlive Films will add two classic war films to its Blu-ray catalog in May: Mark Robson's Home of the Brave (1949), starring Jeff Corey, James Edwards, and Lloyd Bridges, and David Miller's Flying Tigers (1942), starring John Wayne, John Carroll, and Anna Lee.

Flying Tigers

They were the terror of the sky, a small daring band of American mercenaries who soared into battle against the Japanese in defense of China's freedom. They were aces, adventurers and heros, America's hottest fighter pilots - The Flying Tigers! Possessing unmatched skill and bravery, Jim Gordon (John Wayne), the Tigers' commander, is the top gun of China's skies. But he faces a battle on the ground when his good friend Woody Jason is suspected of recklessly causing the death of a fellow pilot and is accused of stealing Jim's fiancee. Jim's fight to retain his respect for Woody while maintaining the solidarity of his pilots is an explosive battle of courage and heroism that lights up the sky with action. STREET DATE: May 13th.

Home of the Brave

A black soldier faces the bullets of the Japanese and the arrows of racial prejudice in this powerful WWII drama staring Frank Lovejoy and Lloyd Bridges. STREET DATE: May 13th.

Finally, Flying Tigers. Sands of Iwo Jima is the other John Wayne that Olive still has up their sleeve for this year. I hope there will be more though, after the onslaught of the last couple years.

@Tom Servo Yes, when will we be seeing Sands of Iwo Jima? It's one of my most wanted titles from Olive? I seem to recall reading from an HTF insider that the elements needed work and were due for release early this year, but I can't recall exactly.

Count me in for Flying Tigers.

I look forward to Olive resuming their catalog titles output that frankly no one else will release.

Both are good; for different reasons. Flying Tigers is a flag waving action film with a boo hiss villain in the person of Richard Loo as the Japanese Ace the Tigers must deal with and the usual love triangle to complicate things on the ground. Home Of the Brave is a much more serious film dealing with racism in the trenches. James Edwards is terrific as the black soldier who has to fight the prejudice of his fellow soldiers as well as the enemy.

@bluknight1 I don't know when, I just read somewhere that it, and Flying Tigers were both slated for 2014. Olive also has Dakota as far as I know.
