The Big Red One - The Reconstruction Film Poster


With over 70,000 feet of extra footage to go through, critic/fimmaker Richard Schikel added over 40 minutes to get as close as possible to the late Samuel Fuller's orginal cut of his last film. Lee Marvin plays a gravel-voiced, tough sergeant who, during World War Two, transforms a squad of fresh-faced troops into professional fighting men - and survivors. They battle their way from North Africa, through Sicily, Omaha Beach and Belgium to the ultimate horror of the Nazi Death Camps.
