SIDNEY FULLER’S PARK ROW RELEASED ON DVD 22 OCTOBER 2012
Highly culty and considered to be one of the great cinematic glimpses into the world of journalism Park Row, made in 1952 by Samuel Fuller is getting a long awaited UK DVD release this 22 October by Eureka Entertainment.
Iconic American filmmaker Fuller began his career as a tabloid reporter, and drew on those skills and experiences in his extraordinary labour-of-love Park Row. An exhilarating tribute to the ideals of the free press and noble popular journalism, this two-fisted tale of battles on and off the printed page in 1880s New York is a major American rediscovery.
When Phineas Mitchell (Gene Evans), a visionary newspaperman, launches his own title The Globe, his eye-catching headlines and approach quickly catch fire with the New York readership. But less impressed is Charity Hackett (Mary Welch), proprietor of long-established rival The Star, and attempts to undercut The Globe soon escalate into all-out war.
The release feature a new digital transfer, isolated music and effects track, the original theatrical trailer and an illustrated booklet.
