Walter Hill's directorial debut Hard Times on dual format in April
20 February 2017
Eureka Entertainment is to release Hard Times (aka The Streetfighter), Walter Hill’s two-fisted action drama featuring Charles Bronson at his explosive best, as part of the Masters of Cinema Series in a Dual Format edition on 24 April 2017 at the RRP of £19.99.
The American action auteur Walter Hill made a magnificent directorial debut with this pulp triumph, featuring evocative period atmosphere and sterling performances from Charles Bronson and James Coburn.
Bronson plays a drifter suddenly caught up in the fight game during the Great Depression. Chaney, a down-on-his-luck loner, hops a freight train to New Orleans where, on the seedier side of town, he tries to make some quick money the only way he knows how – with his fists. Chaney approaches a hustler named Speed (James Coburn) and convinces him that he can win big money for them both.
Gritty, vivid and engrossing, the Masters of Cinema Series is presenting this 1970s gem, available on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK, with a transfer sourced from a new 4K restoration, in a new Dual-Format edition.
