The story of an inventor who makes a rain-making machine. Needless to say - it goes wrong...
In this war-era comedy, a ragtag band of journalists working for a military magazine have three days to put together an issue and, faced with too few stories and too little time, the gang turns to a shady character for help. At the end of the Second World War, the editor of the famed army weekly Yank magazine (Golden Globe-winner George Nader, Four Guns to the Border) flies across the Pacific with his staff to document life in post-war Japan. Handed an impossibly tight deadline, they head to Tokyo's black market to search for story ideas, where they stumble upon underworld con-artist Joe Butterfly (Oscar-nominee Burgess Meredith, Rocky). Butterfly offers the Yank staff an alternative to their run-down offices, setting them up in a plush, private mansion but the new headquarters, frequented by a few local ladies, are seriously against regulations. As the Yank staffers one played by war hero and Hollywood legend Audie Murphy (To Hell and Back), among others scramble to put together an issue, the sticky situation they find themselves in grows increasingly absurd, and laughs abound.

Douglas Sirk - the master of the Hollywood melodrama - turns back to his native Germany at the time of the Second World War for the film that would stand as his penultimate American feature: A Time to Love and a Time to Die. A CinemaScope production staged on a grand scale Sirk's picture nevertheless pulsates with an intimacy that has known longing for too long and seethes with the repression of emotions poised to explode like bombs. John Gavin plays Ernst Gräber a soldier on the Russian-German Front in 1944 venturing home to Hamburg on a rare furlough. Upon arrival he discovers a city that bears little resemblance to the one he left behind - and so through the rubble of the air-raids he searches desperately for fragments of his family's shattered lives. But amid the shards he falls in love with Elisabeth (Liselotte Pulver) the charming daughter of his parents' doctor and thus activates a magnetism that compels both individuals toward one another in love even as it hurtles them headlong into epochal death. Adapted from the novel by Erich Maria Remarque (the author of All Quiet on the Western Front who also makes a cameo appearance in Sirk's picture) A Time to Love and a Time to Die takes its literary source and sculpts it anew out of matter made from color decor and performance - and arguably bests the novel on all aesthetic levels. Yet perhaps nothing can better summarise the power of Sirk's film - or of his entire body of work - than these words from the movie's trailer: Their pounding hearts drowned out the sound of chaos thundering around them. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Douglas Sirk's 1958 masterpiece for the first time on Blu-ray anywhere in the world. Special Features: Gorgeous 1080p presentation of the film in its original 2:35:1 CinemaScope aspect ratio English SDH subtitles for the hearing impaired Optional isolated music and effects track Of Tears and Speed: According To Jean-Luc Godard - a 12-minute visually annotated recitation of Jean-Luc Godard's seminal essay on Sirk's film 19-minute video interview with Wesley Strick screenwriter of Scorsese's Cape Fear and author of the novel Out There in the Dark a roman-à-clef based upon Sirk's life in Hollywood and his relationship with the estranged son who took a starring role in Hitler Youth propaganda. Imitation Of Life [Mirage Of Life]: A Portrait Of Douglas Sirk - a 49-minute film portrait from 1984 directed by Daniel Schmid and photographed by Renato Berta of Douglas Sirk and his wife Hilda in conversation and reflecting from their apartment in Germany back upon their lives in Hollywood The original trailer for the film from the time it retained the provisional title of simply A Time to Love 36-page booklet containing the complete text of Jean-Luc Godard's essay on the film writings from critic Tag Gallagher on the film and Sirk's career in general and an assemblage of notes that includes excerpts from Sirk's reflections upon the film remarks upon visual motifs inside the movie the CinemaScope process used to photograph the picture and more.
