Product Overview

Starring some of the most well-known and toughest actors of American film history comes the American Heroes Collection, showcasing some of their grittier roles. Films included are: IN HARM'S WAY, HELL IS FOR HEROES & THE BRIDGES OF TOKO-RI.

IN HARM'S WAY: Producer-director Otto Preminger's epic treatment of the bombing of Pearl Harbor details the devastating sneak attack on the Naval base as well as the explosive behind the scenes stories. An awesome cast of stars including John Wayne, Kirk Douglas, Patricia Neal, Henry Fonda, Carroll O'Connor, Burgess Meredith, Paula Prentiss and a host of other notables are interwoven into this account of the attack itself, the disobeyed orders, the American counter-offensive, father-son reunions, battles at sea, and layers of romantic entanglements. It's a story that's been told and re-told, but perhaps never so completely.

HELL IS FOR HEROES: Young stars Steve McQueen, Bobby Darin, Fess Parker, Harry Guardino, James Coburn, Nick Adams and Bob Newhart (in his film debut) play a hopelessly out-numbered army squad in Hell Is For Heroes, a taut, explosive war film directed by Don Siegel (Dirty Harry, Escape From Alcatraz). It's autumn 1944, and Nazi forces along the Siegfried Line have the numbers, the fortifications and the firepower to break through. And a handful of GIs have little more that a dogged determination, and the ingenuity, to fool the Germans into thinking they represent a great Allied Task Force. But can they make the ruse last until reinforcements finally arrive?

THE BRIDGES OF TOKO-RI: Not every pilot can guide his aircraft from a wave-tossed deck, seek out targets over unfamiliar Korean terrain, then return to what looks like a speck in the sea. Naval Reservist Harry Brubaker (William Holden) can. This masterful story of a war-weary World War II veteran who must leave his family to fight again combines moving drama with surefire, bombs-away aerial action. Also starring Grace Kelly as his loving luminescent wife.
