The Film Detective goes Hi-Def on May 12 with a trio of newly restored classic film selections making their debut on the Blu-ray format.
First up is director Steve Sekely’s 1948 film noir adaptation of the Murray Forbes novel, Hollow Triumph. Paul Henreid stars as a murderer on the run who hits upon the perfect hide-in-plain-sight identity … only to fall victim to his on cleverness. Joan Bennett co-stars.
Humphrey Bogart joins Peter Lorre, Robert Morley, Jennifer Jones and Gina Lollobrigida in director John Huston’s conmen-conning-conmen comedy, Beat the Devil (the script was provided by none other than Truman Capote).
And lastly, Herbert J. Biberman’s 1954 historical drama, Salt of the Earth — starring Will Geer — will be available for the first time as a newly-restored Blu-ray product offering.
