The Day and the Hour

Type: New Blu-Ray

International screen icon Simone Signoret (Diabolique, Room at the Top, Madame Rosa) stars in the powerful World War II drama The Day and the Hour, directed by René Clément (Forbidden Games, Joy House, Is Paris Burning?). Signoret is superb as Thérèse, a lonely and isolated woman who unwittingly gets involved in the Resistance. When British and American planes are shot down over France, the Germans scour the countryside for the pilots. On her way to Paris, Thérèse discovers the Allied airmen hiding among a truckload of goats. She reluctantly agrees to smuggle the pilots into neutral Spain, and along the way finds herself falling in love with U.S. Captain Allan Morley (Stuart Whitman, Sands of the Kalahari, Guyana: Cult of the Damned). Co-starring Geneviève Page (The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes), Michel Piccoli (Max and the Junkmen) and Reggie Nalder (Zoltan… Hound of Dracula), The Day and the Hour delivers a gripping tale of wartime romance and suspense.
