The General Died at Dawn
Brand New 4K Master! From Lewis Milestone, the celebrated director of All Quiet on the Western Front, The Front Page, A Walk in the Sun, Pork Chop Hill, Mutiny on the Bounty and Ocean’s 11, comes this classic tale of courage and heroism starring screen greats Gary Cooper (The Lives of a Bengal Lancer, Beau Geste) and Madeleine Carroll (The 39 Steps, My Favorite Blonde). O’Hara (Cooper) is a mysterious American soldier of fortune who tries to foil the ambitions of General Yang (Akim Tamiroff, Touch of Evil, After the Fox), a ruthless warlord who plans to take over the provinces of Northern China. On route to Shanghai with money to buy arms for the oppressed peasants, O’Hara is lured into Yang’s clutches by a beautiful American (Carroll). An intriguing game of double-cross ensues with O’Hara battling overwhelming odds in a deadly struggle against tyranny. Exotic settings and gorgeous cinematography (Victor Milner, Cleopatra) highlight this action-packed film noir co-starring Dudley Digges (The Invisible Man), Porter Hall (Miracle on 34th Street) and William Frawley (Fred Mertz of TV’s I Love Lucy). The General Died at Dawn was nominated for 3 Oscars: Actor in a Supporting Role (Tamiroff), Cinematography (Milner) and Score (Boris Morros, Werner Janssen).
