From Budd Boetticher, the legendary director of Bullfighter and the Lady, Horizons West, The Killer Is Loose, 7 Men from Now and Comanche Station, comes this action-packed World War II classic starring Jeff Chandler (Man in the Shadow), Alex Nicol (The Sleeping City), Charles Drake (No Name on the Bullet) and screen great Sidney Poitier (Lilies of the Field). During the height of the war, General Patton’s Third Army is in desperate need of supplies after a successful invasion of Paris. An elite military truck force is established to deliver goods to the soldiers. Members of this platoon must not only withstand minefields and Nazi resistance, they must also learn to overcome their personal and racial prejudices towards one another. Red Ball Express is a gripping, powerful action-thriller based on true events. Hugh O’Brian (Ambush Bay) and Jack Kelly (Young Billy Young) lead the strong supporting cast.
