Newly Restored in HD from 2K Scans! Cease Fire! began as an idea by director Owen Crump, who in the 40s scripted military-themed short films for Warner Brothers and later on produced the documentary short One Who Came Back, about the air evacuation of wounded U.S. soldiers who fought in the Korean War. Crump approached producer Hal B. Wallis (Casablanca), an old friend from his Warner Brothers days with his concept for Cease Fire! This one-of-a-kind classic was the rare production that employed the stereoscopic process to heighten reality, emphasizing the brutality of combat, the vastness of a cold, unfamiliar terrain and the isolation felt by a patrol of valiant fighting men. Part documentary, part drama and part cinéma vérité, Cease Fire! still remains a unique and remarkable achievement in filmmaking.


DVD Extras Include:

General Mark W. Clark introductions for premiere engagements

Restored three-channel stereophonic sound
