Violent Saturday on dual format in April

17 March 2014

Eureka! Entertainment have announced the April release of Violent Saturday, a key but overlooked 1950s criss-crossed heist tale which influenced Kubrick’s The Killing and Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs. Directed by Richard Fleischer (The Boston Strangler and 10 Rillington Place) this first ever home video release will include new special features, including an interview with fan William Friedkin (The French Connection, The Exorcist, To Live and Die in LA).

Three criminals arrive in the small mining town of Bradenville, planning on robbing its only bank. But as they start scouting the area and gathering the information they need, the lives of others in the town threaten to get mixed up in their scheme, in a tangle that could lead to disastrous consequences.

Featuring the iconic Victor Mature and Lee Marvin, and with Ernest Borgnine in one of his most unforgettable roles, Violent Saturday is a fascinating gem of Hollywood storytelling, complete with memorably vicious and idiosyncratic details, brilliant performances, and stunning Cinemascope imagery.

Violent Saturday will be released on UK dual format (Blu-ray and DVD) on 21st April 2014 by Eureka! Entertainment at the RRP of £17.99.

Featurting a stunning high-definition master, with 4.0 and 2.0 soundtracks, on both Blu-ray and DVD, the release will have the following extras:

  • A new video examination of the making of the film by Nicolas Saada

  • A video appreciation by director William Friedkin
