Fritz Lang's Man Hunt Coming To DVD
DVD Drive-In reports that Fox Home Video will release Fritz Lang's WWII spy movie Man Hunt, starring Walter Pidgeon and George Sanders, as part of their "Fox Classics" line later this year. Man Hunt follows a British big game hunter (Pidgeon) who decides to put his talents to use by taking a shot at Hitler on the eve of WWII. Upon returning to England, unsuccessful, he finds himself in a deadly cat-and-mouse game with Gestapo agents (including John Carradine) who want him to sign a confession saying he was acting on behalf of the British government in his assassination attempt. The title has long been requested on DVD. According to the website, though, "no date has been set yet, but expect [it] to appear in '08!"
