‘Hell and High Water’ on Blu-ray December 7, 2020!

Hell High Water Blu-ray“In the summer of 1953, it was announced that an atomic bomb of foreign origin had been exploded somewhere outside of the United States… This is the story of that explosion. ” Starting with a nuclear explosion and only escalating from there, Hell and High Water is a white-knuckle Cold War thriller that would have a huge influence on the future of blockbuster cinema (Steven Spielberg was so enamoured with the film that he kept a print in his car for many years). When military intelligence suggests a secret atomic base is being covertly set-up on an island near Japan, former US Navy commander Adam Jones (Richard Widmark) is sent on a covert mission to prevent a nuclear attack that could trigger World War 3. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Samuel Fuller’s Hell and High Water on Blu-ray from a stunning 4K restoration. Hell and High Water is released on Blu-ray December 7, 2020!
