Beau Geste (Blu-ray)
Directed by William Wellman
J. Carrol Naish
Brand New 4K Master! From William A. Wellman, the acclaimed director of Wings, The Public Enemy, Nothing Sacred, The Ox-Bow Incident, Yellow Sky and The High and the Mighty, comes this epic adventure starring screen legends Gary Cooper (The General Died at Dawn), Ray Milland (The Lost Weekend), Robert Preston (Junior Bonner) and Susan Hayward (I Want to Live!). Cooper, Milland and Preston are Beau, John and Digby Geste, three brothers who join the Foreign Legion to escape a troubled past only to find themselves trapped under the command of the sadistic Sergeant Markoff (Brian Donlevy, The Great McGinty) deep in the scorching Sahara. Now the brothers must fight for their lives as they plot mutiny against tyranny and defend a desert fortress against a brutal enemy. The stellar cast includes J. Carrol Naish (Joan of Arc), Albert Dekker (Dr. Cyclops), Broderick Crawford (Night People) and Donald O’Connor (Singin’ in the Rain). Beau Geste has been universally acclaimed by generations of critics and audiences alike as a true motion picture classic and was nominated for two Oscars: Actor in a Supporting Role (Donlevy) and Art Direction (Hans Dreier, Robert Odell).
