Patton and Von Ryan's Express Dated

Posted September 12, 2012 05:59 PM by Webmaster

20th Century Fox20th Century Fox Entertainment has detailed its upcoming Blu-ray releases of Mark Robson's Von Ryan's Express (1965), starring Frank Sinatra, Trevor Howard and Raffaella Carrŕ, and Franklin J. Schaffner's Patton (1970), starring George C. Scott, Karl Malden and Stephen Young. The two releases will be available for purchase on November 6th.

Von Ryan's Express

Central Italy, August 1943. With the collapse of the Italian war effort, the SS herds 400 Allied POWs aboard a heavily guarded freight train and embarks for an internment camp in Austria. Realizing it's their only chance to escape, Colonel Joseph Ryan (Sinatra) and a handful of officers manage to subdue their guards and hijack the train. Barreling across Nazi-occupied Italy, Ryan and his men race for the Swiss border, as German troops, the Gestapo and a dive bombing fleet of Messerschmidts follow in deadly pursuit.

Special Features:
  • Hollywood and Its War Films
  • Bringing Movies to Life: The Legacy of Jerry Goldsmith
  • 2 Additional Featurettes
  • Isolated Score Track and More!

Patton (Remastered)

This spectacular tribute to one of the most extraordinary figures of World War II, General George S. Patton, Jr., won seven 1970 Academy Awards: Best Picture; Director (Franklin J. Schaffner); Writing, Story and Screenplay Based on Factual Material or Material Not Previously Published or Produced; Sound; Film Editing; Art Direction-Set Direction; and Best Actor for George C. Scott. Scott's unflinching portrayal of the controversial military leader shows him as he was: beloved and despised, charismatic and confrontational. General Patton was a brilliant strategist, a pious man who swore up a storm - and his skills led the United States into the most famous and pivotal battles of the war in Europe.

Special Features:

Disc 1: Blu-ray
  • Introduction by Francis Ford Coppola
  • Commentary by Francis Ford Coppola
Disc 2: DVD
  • History Through the Lens: Patton — A Rebel Revisited Documentary
  • Patton's Ghost Corps Documentary
  • The Making of Patton Documentary
  • Production Still Gallery Accompanied by Jerry Goldsmith's Complete Musical Score
  • Behind-the-Scenes Still Gallery Accompanied by an Audio Essay on the Historical Patton
  • Original Theatrical Trailer

I don't care what anyone else says, I'm not going to jump on the DNR hater bandwagon. I'm very happy with the previous Blu-ray edition transfer, in my humble opinion, it looks stunning and it's a keeper for me.

Ha, speak of the devil; just read this elsewhere: "20th Century Fox (and MGM) is getting ready to release Cleopatra, The Great Escape, How Green Was My Valley, Laura, Fantastic Voyage and Hello Dolly on Blu-ray in 2013."

Since we're on the subject of war movies,how about a restored Sink The Bismarck,The Blue Max and one of my favorites,the fully restored 126 min version of Force 10 From Navarone.

I am happy this is wide release, not the Best buy exclusive book edition (or whatever it is called.) More likely for price drop.

That old superlative Blu-ray.com review of Patton [Full Wax Edition] was a real shame. I'm actually very surprised Fox didn't fix this horrible release earlier, but at least they're finally taking responsibility.

If you think they're fixing Patton because they care about quality, guess again. They see a chance to rationalize a double dip. No doubt their marketing gurus have been waiting for enough time to have passed since the inital release so that they don't look like they are admitting their mistakes but are instead generously offering a newly remastered disc of a popular classic film. If they had really cared they would have fixed it right away. Glad it's coming but thanks to the studio aren't appropriate.

They should have a replacement/exchange program on Patton. I like my DigiBook.

I guess I'm putting disc 1 with the remastered movie on it in my beautiful Patton digibook. Looks like the rest is the same. Still, I'm buying it.

The Longest Day is bit more problematic. Not everyone who has seen it agrees that there is an issue. Some think that it is a fantastic disc.

@chiefsequatchie: Are you really sure you want to do that given the history of this movie on disc? Remember it could be remastered and still have the same or similar problems. We won't know for sure until a few reviewers have had an opportunity to see it.
