A towering figure of American cinema, Samuel Fuller was a master of the B-movie, a pulp maestro whose iconoclastic vision elevated the American genre film to new heights. After the major success of The Steel Helmet, Fuller was put under contract by Twentieth Century Fox after being impressed by Darryl F. Zanuck s direct sales pitch (other studios offered Fuller money and tax shelters; Zanuck simply told him, We make better movies. ).

Over a six-year period, Fuller would produce some of the best work of his career, an uncompromising series of masterpieces spanning multiple genres (the Western, the War film, film noir, the Crime-Thriller) that would establish the director as a true auteur, whose influence continues to be felt today.

Collected here are five films from this fruitful period, all presented from stunning restorations. The impossibly tense Korean-War drama Fixed Bayonets! (1951); the outrageous and confrontational spy-thriller Pickup on South Street (1953); the Cold War submarine-actioner Hell and High Water (1954); the lushly photographed, cold-as-ice noir, House of Bamboo (1955); and the audacious Western with a feminist twist, Forty Guns (1957). Also included is Samantha Fuller s 2013 documentary, A Fuller Life, featuring friends and admirers of the great director reading extracts from his memoirs.


Although previously released by The Masters of Cinema Series - the Forty Guns disc has been newly authored from Fox s 4K RESTORATION. All bonus disc content remains the same.


All five films presented on Blu-ray in 1080p, with Fixed Bayonets!, Pickup on South Street, Hell and High Water, and Forty Guns presented from Fox's stunning 4K restorations, with House of Bamboo presented from a 2K restoration
