Directed by Samuel Fuller
Brand New 4K Restoration! Legendary director Samuel Fuller (The Big Red One, The Steel Helmet) delivers a rough, tough, hard-hitting action-packed masterpiece, incorporating all the gritty, suspenseful, real-life elements to build a war classic of enormous emotional proportion. Richard Basehart as Cpl. Denno (The Satan Bug) and Gene Evans as Sgt. Rock (Donovan’s Brain) co-star in this war adventure that puts you right in the line of fire… a freezing snow blasts the mountain peaks of wartime Korea. A small platoon of army grunts are ordered to stay behind to protect a 15,000-man division as it moves out under heavy communist fire. The cast includes Skip Homeier (The Gunfighter), Bill Hickman (Hickey & Boggs) and James Dean (Giant) in one of his first film appearances. (One of the greatest war films ever... evokes the full horror of war) – Chicago Reader.
"Sam Fuller was a born storyteller, and Fixed Bayonets! is one of his most satisfying stories. Colored by his own combat experiences, the film crackles with vitality and authenticity and is brilliantly headlined by Gene Evans and Richard Basehart. Highly Recommended."
"The KL Studio Classics Blu-ray of Fixed Bayonets! is a polished and handsome encoding of this very attractive war picture"
"Fixed Bayonets! is an excellent film, with a great cast and great director at the helm, and is essential to those who are interested in War films. The movie looks just marvelous on Blu-ray. Add a couple of good extras and you’ve got another great package from Kino Lorber Studio Classics."
