BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI coming to Blu-ray.

One of the all-time great films is coming to Blu-ray: BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI will be released on BD on November 2nd, 2010. William Holden plays a G.I. that escapes from a POW camp, only to be “asked” to lead a squad of commandos back to take out a bridge. Sir Alec Guinness is spellbinding as a British Colonel POW.

When British POWs build a vital railway bridge in enemy-occupied Burma, Allied commandos are assigned to destroy it in David Lean’s epic World War II adventure THE BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI. Spectacularly produced, THE BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI captured the imagination of the public and won seven 1957 Academy Awards(r), including Best Picture, Best Actor (Alec Guinness), and Best Director. Even it’s theme song, an old WWII whistling tune, the Colonel Bogey March, became a massive hit. THE BRIDGE ONTHE RIVER KWAI continues today as one of the most memorable cinematic experiences of all time.
