The Tarnished Angels (Blu-ray)
Directed by Douglas Sirk
Set in the 1930s Depression era during Mardi Gras in New Orleans, The Tarnished Angels covers three days in the lives of a trio of flying-circus performers, headlined by former WWI fighter-pilot hero Roger Shumann (Robert Stack, Bwana Devil) and his beautiful blonde wife, LaVerne (Dorothy Malone, The Last Sunset). Romantic complications arise when newspaper reporter Burke Devlin (Rock Hudson, Blindfold) falls in love with LaVerne while covering their daredevil aerial show. Legendary filmmaker Douglas Sirk (Magnificent Obsession, All That Heaven Allows, Written on the Wind, Imitation of Life) directed this masterpiece based on a novel by William Faulkner (The Reivers), adapted for the screen by George Zuckerman (99 River Street). Featuring Troy Donahue (A Summer Place) in one of his earlier roles.
