Eureka Entertainment to release THE FLIGHT OF THE PHOENIX, Robert Aldrich’s all time classic thriller starring James Stewart, Richard Attenborough and an international cast, as part of the Masters of Cinema Series on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK on 12 Sept 2016.

One of Hollywood’s toughest and most idiosyncratic filmmakers, Robert Aldrich (Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?, The Dirty Dozen) had one of his greatest and most cherished popular successes with the thrilling adventure classic The Flight of the Phoenix, headlined by an all-star cast including James Stewart, Richard Attenborough, Peter Finch, Ernest Borgnine and Hardy Krüger.

A cargo plane carrying an assortment of oilmen and military personnel crashes in the Sahara Desert during a sandstorm. Realising they’re too far off course to be found and rescued before food and water runs out, their only hope is to attempt to rebuild the aircraft amidst the unforgiving environment.

An engrossing mix of intensely physical filmmaking and marvellous character turns across the board, The Flight of the Phoenix is a vivid chronicle of men under pressure, with unsettling questions about the nature of leadership. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present a new Blu-ray special edition of the film.

  • New high-definition 1080p presentation
  • Uncompressed mono soundtrack
  • Isolated music & effects track

BatI love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Silent Hill
