'Retreat, Hell!' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Tue Apr 30, 2013 at 06:00 AM PDT by

The 1952 war drama is heading to Blu-ray in June.

In an early announcement to retailers, Olive Films is preparing 'Retreat, Hell!' for Blu-ray on June 18.

Considered by most to be one of the greatest Korean War films ever made, the movie follows a U.S. Marine battalion headed by Lt. Col. Steve L. Corbett (Frank Lovejoy, 'Shack Out on 101') and Capt. Paul Hansen (Richard Carlson, 'Flat Top') as it must fight its way out of a frozen mountain pass despite diminishing supplies, freezing temperatures and constant attacks by overwhelming numbers of Chinese and North Korean soldiers. The stellar cast includes Russ Tamblyn (billed as Rusty) in his first "adult" role, future-director Lamont Johnson ('The McKenzie Break'), and real-life war hero Peter Ortiz, one of the most decorated Marine officers of World War II. Directed by legendary filmmaker Joseph H. Lewis ('The Big Combo,' 'Gun Crazy'). Co-written and produced by Milton Sperling ('Merrill's Marauders').

Specs and supplements have not been revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is set at $29.95.
