Von Richthofen and Brown 05/14/19
Freshly divorced from American-International Pictures, Roger Corman leaps into the filmic mainstream with a fairly large-scale World War One aviation picture. He competes with the big studios but retains his nonconformist atitude: his retelling of the story of the Red Baron fixates on the theme of the death of chivalry in combat. For his star players Corman picks Don Stroud, and John Philip Law, whose on-screen persona is a good fit for one of the first warrior aces of the sky. With Barry Primus, Corin Redgrave, Stephen McHattie, Hurd Hatfield, Ferdy Mayne and Peter Masterson. On Blu-ray from KL Studio Classics.
