The Film Detective Presents the Intriguing, Golden Age Sizzler 'The Capture,' Coming to Special-Edition Blu-ray & DVD, Jan. 18th

Killing a Man is One Thing ... Loving His Wife is Another! Rare 1950 Western Noir Classic Returns With Striking New Restoration & Exclusive Special Features

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cinedigm announced today that The Film Detective, the classic film restoration and streaming company, will release the western noir classic The Capture (1950) on special-edition Blu-ray and DVD, available Jan. 18. 

From writer Niven Busch, author of Duel in the Sun, comes this equally torrid sizzler, loaded with the intrigue and passion that marked the Golden Age of Cinema.

Injured and on the run from police, Lin Vanner (Lew Ayres) confesses the sordid details of his life to a priest, which includes the death of a man he'd turned over to the police. Vanner also reveals that he fell in love with the dead man's widow (Teresa Wright), only to have his past catch up to him.  

Haunting and offbeat, The Capture was directed by one of Hollywood's best, John Sturges, famed director of The Great Escape (1963) and The Magnificent Seven (1960).

This special edition Blu-ray and DVD release will feature a stunning 4K transfer of The Capture from 35mm archival material from the Wade Williams Collection. 

BONUS FEATURES: A brand-new featurette, John Sturges: Man of Action from Jacob T. Swinney; audio commentary with author/screenwriter C. Courtney Joyner; Teresa Wright: The Actress Next Door, a brand-new featurette from Jacob T. Swinney; and Not Quite Picture Perfect, an essay by author Don Stradley.

The Capture will be available on Blu-ray ($24.95) and DVD ($19.95) starting Jan.18 or fans can secure a copy by pre-ordering now at:
