Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has added Lost Command to their line-up, bringing the movie to DVD in April.
Academy Award(r) winner Anthony Quinn gives one of his best performances as Lieutenant Colonel PierreRaspeguy, a hardheaded officer determined to become a hero at any cost in this dramatic war saga. After Lt. Col. Raspeguy leads his defeated and humiliated French army out of Indochina, he learns that he’s been relieved of his command. He gets another chance to prove himself when he meets and falls in love with a French countess (Michele Morgan), who finagles a new position for him in Algeria. There, Lt. Col. Raspeguy persuades two wartime buddies to join him in shaping up a ragtag unit. Eventually he is forced to confront an Arab terrorist (George Segal) attempting to oust the French from Algeria. Now, in his desperate struggle to achieve victory, Lt. Col. Raspeguy launches a bloody battle against the terrorist rebel forces. With strong technical merit and outstanding performances throughout, “Lost Command” vividly illustrates man’s inhumanity to man… for the sake of personal glory.
THe release features an anamorphic widescreen transfer of the movie with Dolby Surround sound, but will arrive without notable extras, except for the movie’s Theatrical Trailers.
“Lost Command” will be re-released on April 5 for $14.98.
