Product Overview

BATTLE OF THE BULGE This epic recreation of one of World War II’s pivotal clashes captures the explosive action of massive forces squaring off as well as the brave ingenuity of weary GIs trying to survive a cruel European winter. Ken Annakin (The Longest Day) directs an all-star juggernaut: Henry Fonda, Robert Shaw, Robert Ryan and more.

THE DAWN PATROL Errol Flynn and David Niven take to the skies in this thrilling aerial action yarn as World War I British flyboys who unite in devil-may-care gallantry and in disdain for their commander (Basil Rathbone). But war’s realities will soon tarnish their bonhomie and change their disdain to understanding.

GUNGA DIN Cary Grant, Victor McLaglen and Douglas Fairbanks Jr. star as cheeky soldiers of Queen and Empire armed with battlefield gallantry and chin-up heroics as they combat a murderous sect in colonial India. Director George Stevens orchestrates teeming battles, boisterous humor – and an indelible title-role performance by Sam Jaffe.

OPERATION PACIFIC Meet the dive-for-glory torpedo devils of the USS Thunderfish as John Wayne commands a desperate World War II submarine mission deep into enemy territory. Patricia Neal and Ward Bond co-star.

Editors Note
Note Turner Classic Movies' Greatest Films Collection constitutes a series of "themed" packages of films; this particular volume hones in on four movies from the war genre, produced over the 27 year span of 1938-1965. The set begins in 1965, with Ken Annakin's epic BATTLE OF THE BULGE - starring Telly Salavas, Robert Shaw and Robert Ryan in a dramatic recreation of the titular December 1944 WWII battle. The second feature jumps back to 1938, for the legendary Edmund Golding's THE DAWN PATROL, starring Errol Flynn, Basil Rathbone and David Niven in a remake of Howard Hawks's 1930 saga about World War I aviators and the futility of war per se. The 1939 adventure GUNGA DIN (seen here in its original black-and-white, and not in the colorized version) stars Cary Grant, Victor McLaglen and Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., in the George Stevens-directed comic adventure about a trio of soldier comrades in 1800s India who divide their time between battling a group of savages and raising hell. Finally, the 1951 OPERATION PACIFIC brings in the Duke himself, John Wayne, as a navy commander in charge of a military unit on the Pacific Front of World War II; Patricia Neal co-stars as Wayne's romantic interest.
