Eureka Entertainment have announced the first ever home video release of Violent Saturday. Available on DVD and Blu-ray, this classic heist tale (which influenced both Kubrick's The Killing and Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs), features new special features, including an interview with acclaimed director and Violent Saturday fan William Friedkin.
A coolly riveting crime saga from director Richard Fleischer (The Boston Strangler, Soylent Green), Violent Saturday tells a brutal noir tale against blazing, sun-drenched Arizona landscapes.
Three criminals arrive in the small mining town of Bradenville, planning on robbing its only bank. But as they start scouting the area and gathering the information they need, the lives of others in the town threaten to get mixed up in their scheme, in a tangle that could lead to disastrous consequences.
Featuring the iconic Victor Mature and Lee Marvin, and with Ernest Borgnine in one of his most unforgettable roles, Violent Saturday is a fascinating gem of Hollywood storytelling, complete with memorably vicious and idiosyncratic details, brilliant performances, and stunning Cinemascope imagery.
