Details

The daring and provocative films of maverick American filmmaker Samuel Fuller (1912-1997) were some of the most hard-hitting, outspoken, politically progressive and visually audacious of the Hollywood studio era. This seven-film Blu-ray box set brings together Fuller’s entire output as a writer and director for Columbia Pictures: 

It Happened in Hollywood (1937), a witty satire on the movie-making business, co-written by Fuller

Adventure in Sahara (1938), a gripping thriller based on a Fuller story

Power of the Press (1943), a daring drama about a corrupt newspaper publisher, based on a Fuller story

Shockproof (1949), a brooding film noir written by Fuller and directed by the great Douglas Sirk

Scandal Sheet, a tense drama about a compromised newspaper editor, based on Fuller's acclaimed novel The Dark Page 

The Crimson Kimono (1959), Fuller's frank and unsentimental detective thriller which attacked the prejudice, ignorance and bigotry that Fuller saw all around him

Underworld USA (1961), Fuller's unflinching depiction of the brutal world of organised crime.

This collectable four-disc box set also contains an array of new and archival extra features, limited edition booklets with newly commissioned essays, archival material, contemporary reviews, and full film credits, and is strictly limited to 6,000 numbered units.
