Sam Peckinpah's underrated war classic now in 4K Ultra HD!

Introducing Studio Canal's 2-Disc UHD 4K (Region Free) + Blu-ray (Region B) release for Cross of Iron, a 1977 war actioner from legendary director Sam Peckinpah (The Wild Bunch, Straw Dogs, The Getaway). Based on the novel by Will Heinrich, Sam Peckinpah’s only war film is an intense and uncompromising affair that brilliantly reflects both the futility of conflict and the director’s fascination with individuals confronted by events beyond their control.

A World War II tale told from the German perspective, Cross of Iron follows a platoon of German soldiers in Russia when the German Wehrmacht forces had been decimated and the Germans were retreating along the Russian front. Rolf Steiner (James Coburn) is a German corporal and recipient of the Iron Cross who has grown disenchanted with Hitler’s war machine. When Captain Stransky (Maximilian Schell) assumes charge, the pair are thrown into immediate conflict, the autocratic but ultimately cowardly Stransky coveting the loyalty and honor Steiner commands.

Evocatively shot by John Coquillon (Billy the Kid) in somber tones to emphasize the horrors of combat, the superlative lead performances are matched by David Warner and James Mason as war-weary senior officers. Viewed as one of Peckinpah’s most powerful works, it’s an unflinching vision of the Second World War.
