Corvette K-225 is a stirring salute to the heroism of the Corvette crews and commanders who steered Allied convoys through the treacherous, U-Boat-infested Atlantic ocean throughout WWII. The story follows a particularly perilous voyage from Halifax, Nova Scotia to Britain. The nail-biting tension is heightened by our knowledge that the film uses actual historic sea combat footage! Better known previously for his tall in the saddle' Western roles, Randolph Scott brings dignity and restraint to the role of a heroic Canadian Navy commander in what's possibly his finest performance. In addition to the thrilling battle scenes, as the doughty Corvette strives to protect the convoys from attack after attack, the film has far greater emotional maturity and depth than most Hollywood wartime action films.Not only is there a terrific supporting cast including Barry Fitzgerald (The Quiet Man), Ella Raines (Hail the Conquering Hero), Thomas Gomez (Key Largo), Noah Beery Jr. (The Rockford Files) and even a glimpse of a young Robert Mitchum (The Night of the Hunter), there's also room for a romantic sub-plot!
Western star Randolph Scott straps on his guns for one of his very best films, now available on DVD for the first time. After losing his horse in a bull-riding contest, rancher Pat Brennan (Randolph Scott) hitches a lift home on the stagecoach out of the frontier town of Contention. At a remote way station, the stage is ambushed by a ruthless bandit gang led by Usher (Richard Boone). They don't intend leaving any witness - until they discover that one of the passengers is copper heiress Doretta Mims (Maureen O'Sullivan). Now they want $50,000 in ransom from her father - or everybody dies. As tension mounts almost to breaking point, Brennan must discover a way to outwit - and outgun - the outlaw gang before they murder all of their hostages. Adapted from a story by Elmore Leonard, The Tall T is widely acknowledged to be one of the very best films in a series of highly rated westerns starring Randolph Scott and directed by Budd Boetticher. In 2000, The American Library of Congress selected the film for special preservation in the U.S. National Film Registry for being 'culturally, historically or aesthetically significant.' Believed by many to be one of his best films, Randolph Scott excels as expected in a western with many twists...
