About the two new films in the World War II Collection
The Big Red One: The Reconstruction - See the separate announcement for full details.
Battle of the Bulge (1965)
For this epic recreation of one of World War II’s most crucial confrontations, director Ken Annakin (The Longest Day) captures the explosive action of massive forces squaring off as well as the brave, individual ingenuity of weary GIs trying to survive a cruel European winter. The cast is a juggernaut of stars: Henry Fonda, Robert Shaw, Robert Ryan, Charles Bronson, Telly Savalas and more.
