Tobruk (Special Edition) (Blu-ray)
Directed by Arthur Hiller
From Arthur Hiller, the director of Love Story, Silver Streak, The In-Laws and Outrageous Fortune comes this World War II blockbuster starring Rock Hudson (Blindfold, Showdown) and George Peppard (Cannon for Cordoba, Newman’s Law) as the leaders of a commando group on a desperate mission. As Rommel’s Afrika Korps sweeps toward Egypt and the Suez Canal in September, 1942, Major Craig (Hudson) suggests that the Desert Fox can be stopped with a daring raid on his fuel bunkers at Tobruk. Colonel Harker (Nigel Green, The Ipcress File) then recruits Craig to guide a team posing as POWs, “guarded” by Captain Bergman (Peppard) and a group of German Jews serving with the British, to their target. Written by Leo Gordon, who also plays Sgt. Krug, Tobruk is highlighted by a spectacular explosive finale in the tradition of The Guns of Navarone and Where Eagles Dare.
