"In the summer of 1953, it was announced that an atomic bomb of foreign origin had been exploded somewhere outside of the United States... This is the story of that explosion. " Starting with a nuclear explosion and only escalating from there, Hell and High Water is a white-knuckle Cold War thriller that would have a huge influence on the future of blockbuster cinema (Steven Spielberg was so enamoured with the film that he kept a print in his car for many years).
When military intelligence suggests a secret atomic base is being covertly set-up on an island near Japan, former US Navy commander Adam Jones (Richard Widmark) is sent on a covert mission to prevent a nuclear attack that could trigger World War 3.
The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Samuel Fuller' s Hell and High Water on Blu-ray from a stunning 4K restoration.
