THE NIGHT OF THE GENERALS (1967) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Christopher Plummer, Omar Sharif, Peter O' Toole, Tom Courtenay, Joanna Pettet, Donald Pleasence
Directed By:  Anatole Litvak
Composed By:  Maurice Jarre

“A handsome film…a more logical, understanding, and historically aware example of the thriller genre than we are accustomed to seeing.” – Hollis Alpert, The Saturday Review

“Within the malevolent environment of the Nazi high command…a lurid and mordant screen account of the unmasking of a general officer who likes to disembowel prostitutes…For those who like vivid melodrama, there is plenty of it here.” – Bosley Crowther, The New York Times

Anatole Litvak directs and Sam Spiegel produces The Night of the Generals (1967), an unusual World War II crime thriller about a Nazi investigation into the murder of a prostitute. Major Grau (Omar Sharif) finds himself focusing on three suspects: the Generals Tanz (Peter O’Toole), Kahlenberg (Donald Pleasence) and Seydlitz-Gabler (Charles Gray) – all three of whom, it seems, are also involved in a plot to kill Hitler. Also starring Tom Courtenay, Joanna Pettet and Philippe Noiret, shot by the great Henri Decaë and featuring a score by Maurice Jarre, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.

This is a gorgeous restoration of a clearly underrated film. The movie has a slow pace, takes its time to build both the story and the amazing characters. The plot is surprising and gripping, and the acting is really superb. This unique WWII thriller never looked better. The image is clear, crisped, detailed; colors are nicely saturated, but not over the top; no sign of DNR is visible, yet grain is virtually absent. If you like the movie, this upgrade is mandatory. If you don't know this little gem but like classic movies, give it a try, you may be surprised.

This was one of the greatest classic war films of all-time and was also one of my personal favorite films that had a really great and amazing cast, drama, action, mystery, suspense, plot and storylines as well.
