Vera Cruz (Blu-ray)
Directed by Robert Aldrich
Pre-orders are generally sent several days in advance of street date.
Legendary screen icons Gary Cooper (High Noon, Beau Geste) and Burt Lancaster (The Train, Elmer Gantry) team up for a magnificent, action-packed western from director Robert Aldrich (The Dirty Dozen, The Last Sunset). With sweeping vistas and larger-than-life heroics, it’s a tale as bold and rugged as the characters it so brilliantly depicts. Cooper and Lancaster portray Benjamin Trane and Joe Erin, two daredevil mercenaries who journey to Mexico in search of adventure—and cold hard cash—during the 1866 revolution. But they get more than they bargained for when the wealthy and beautiful Countess Duvarre (Denise Darcel, Westward the Women) hires them to escort her (and a fortune in gold!) to Emperor Maximilian’s fighting forces in Vera Cruz. The trail is fraught with danger, betrayal and murder... and when Ben is swept up in the revolutionaries’ fervor, he and Joe find themselves at odds with the Mexican Army—and each other! Adapted by Roland Kibbee (Valdez Is Coming) and James R. Webb (The Big Country) from a story by Borden Chase (Red River), Vera Cruz features supporting turns from Cesar Romero (TV’s Batman), George Macready (Gilda), Jack Elam (Rawhide), Ernest Borgnine (Marty) and Charles Bronson (Breakheart Pass).
