The Big Red One: Special Edition

1980 Rated R 2hr 43m

One of the great, unsung war films follows four comrades -- members of the 1st Infantry Division, aka the Big Red One -- from the invasion of North Africa onto Sicily, Normandy and to the liberation of the Nazi death camps. This autobiographical film from B-movie master (and 1st Infantry veteran) Samuel Fuller is alternately funny, absurd and deeply moving. Mark Hamill, Robert Carradine, Bobby Di Cicco, Kelly Ward and Lee Marvin star.
