BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI on Blu-ray in November.

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will be releasing the epic BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI, on Blu-ray, on November 2nd.

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.

If you have not seen this film, your life is not complete. Sir Alec Guinness is utterly brilliant and William Holden is quite good as a rather questionable soldier that escapes from a Japanese POW camp, only to be coerced into leading a commando squad back to the very place he fled. This Oscar winner is a true classic.
