The 1956 film noir A Strange Adventure, helmed by serial and western director William Witney (Sunset in the West, Daredevils of the Red Circle), tells of a trio of armored-car robbers who make their getaway by forcing a young hot-rodder (Ben Cooper, The Last Command) to be their driver. The vicious criminals take over a mountain cabin for a hideout after overpowering its occupants.

The crime drama co-stars Joan Evans (No Name on the Bullet), Marla English (Voodoo Woman), Jan Merlin (Cole Younger, Gunfighter) and Nick Adams (Invasion of Astro-Monster). The striking black-and-white cinematography comes courtesy of Bud Thackery (Coogan’s Bluff).

The film is presented with a brand new HD Master taken from a 4K scan of the 35mm original negative by Paramount Pictures Archive.

Blu-ray extras include an audio commentary by Film Historian Toby Roan and Jay Dee Whitney and a collection of trailers.
