Hell And High Water (With Booklet) Limited Edition Blu-Ray
Eureka Entertainment to release HELL AND HIGH WATER; Samuel Fuller’s Cold War submarine adventure starring Richard Widmark; presented on Blu-ray from a stunning 4K restoration, as a part of The Masters of Cinema Series. Available from 7 December 2020, the release will be limited to 1000 copies only.

“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 (Fuller was a master of the opening scene – “If a story doesn’t give you a hard-on in the first couple of scenes, throw it in the goddamn garbage.”), 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.
