The Cockleshell Heroes, the classic exhilarating action thriller based on true events, is coming to Blu-ray for the first time ever as part of the Eureka Classics range from 15 July 2019.
At the height of the Second World War, a battalion of German ships are safely docked at the “unassailable” port of Bordeaux.
Newly promoted Major Stringer (José Ferrer, also behind the camera as director) has a unique idea – send a team of commandos out in collapsible canoes, have them paddle seventy miles upriver in arduous conditions and blow up the German ships with limpet mines.
Also starring Trevor Howard and Christopher Lee, The Cockleshell Heroes is the true story of one of the most daring raids in British military history, and Eureka Classics is proud to present the film in its worldwide debut on Blu-ray.
