The Young Savages Blu-ray

Posted June 20, 2014 05:14 PM by Webmaster

Kino InternationalU.S. distributors Kino Lorber have confirmed that they will release on Blu-ray director John Frankenheimer's The Young Savages (1961), starring Burt Lancaster, Dina Merrill, Edward Andrews, Telly Savalas, Shelley Winters, and Vivian Nathan. The release is scheduled to arrive on the U.S. market in September.

Synopsis: The beginning of the long association between director John Frankenheimer and actor Burt Lancaster, The Young Savages stars the latter as Assistant D.A. Hank Bell. In the Spanish Harlem of the late 1950s, Hank is prosecuting three members of an Italian street gang who have been charged with the stabbing death of a blind Puerto Rican teenager. Although D.A. Dan Cole (Edward Andrews), eager to boost his career, has told the press that he'll seek the death penalty, Hank, a product of the same kind of slum neighborhood as both the killers and their victim, resolves to remain neutral until he's completed his investigation. His involvement is complicated both by his liberal wife Karin's (Dina Merrill) stand against capital punishment, and the fact that one of the indicted, Danny Di Pace (Stanley Kristien) is the son of his former fiance Mary (Shelley Winters). As he patiently probes the case, Hank learns that the victim was actually the leader of a Puerto Rican street gang who was pimping his 13-year-old sister on the side. As tensions escalate on both sides, Karin is attacked by a street gang, and Hank is viciously beaten up in a subway. This solid, socially conscious, police procedural, was only the director's second feature, and he gets fine performances from Lancaster and Shelley Winters. Young composer David Amram, who would also work on the director's The Manchurian Candidate, contributes a sharp, jazz-inflected score.

OK, I'm starting to worry now. With this seemingly endless stream of classics coming from Kino over the next months, how will the quality be? it seems they're cranking them out as fast as possible.

MGM most likely did the masters and as I have stated before have probably sat on them for years.

Unfortunately, The Young Savages is not a classic. I'm a big fan of Frankenheimer and Lancaster, but this movie was a disappointment because of a screenplay that was a complete letdown, especially at the end.

Not sure if I'll buy this one, but I hope Kino get around to 'Birdman Of Alcatraz' soon!

I mean, its a good thing of KINO to release it. But the BR's (most of them) don't have any subtitles for foreign speaking or heard hearing people which is a big shame in 21th Century. And I mean.. specially for BR. I bought already a couple KINO BR's and the quality had been just passable.
The movie "The young savages" is very good.. but will wait for more details.
