Blu-ray Release Date: July 16, 2019
Price: Blu-ray $29.95
Studio: Twilight Time

From producer/director Fred Zinnemann (A Man For All Seasons) comes Behold a Pale Horse (1964), a somber yet harrowingly suspenseful thriller of personal conviction in the face of political repression, set against the backdrop of the dark decades following the 1936-1939 Spanish Civil War.

In charismatic and charged performances, Gregory Peck (To Kill a Mockingbird) plays an exiled guerrilla fighter, Anthony Quinn (The River’s Edge) is the dogged police chief who lays a trap to catch him, and Omar Sharif (Che!) portrays a priest who intervenes to prevent the antagonists’ inevitable confrontation.

Starkly photographed on French locations by Jean Badal, and powerfully scored by three-time Academy Award winner Maurice Jarre (Lawrence of Arabia).

The sole bonus feature on this Twilight Time release is an original theatrical trailer.
