‘Sundown,’ starring Gene Tierney, released on DVD

HollywoodNews.com: One of the most interesting films to star Gene Tierney comes to DVD for the very first time as Turner Classic Movies (TCM), in conjunction with Westchester Films Inc., releases the rarely seen wartime drama Sundown (1941). The action-packed tale set against the backdrop of World War II will be available exclusively via TCM beginning Aug. 30. The Sundown DVD includes extensive supplemental materials compiled by TCM and material from the TCM archives. Among the highlights are original movie posters, lobby cards, publicity stills, behind-the-scenes photos and more.

Sundown takes place in an isolated desert outpost in East Africa, where the district commissioner (Bruce Cabot) and a British army officer (George Sanders) try to unravel a plot by the Nazis to arm the hostile local tribesmen with weapons. When a mysterious woman named Zia (Tierney) arrives at the fort with her caravan of traders, the situation grows more deadly. She is suspected of being an undercover arms dealer working for the German army. But she agrees to help the British soldiers by cozying up to a Nazi commander (Carl Esmond) and getting him to reveal his secret plans.

Sundown was produced by Walter Wanger and directed by Henry Hathaway from a script by Barre Lyndon and Charles G. Booth. In addition to providing Tierney with one of her most intriguing roles, the film is notable for featuring early screen appearances by Dorothy Dandridge and Woody Strode. Sundown earned three Academy Award nominations for Best Music (Miklós Rózsa), Best Cinematography (Charles Lang) and Best Art Direction – Interior Decoration (Alexander Golitzen and Richard Irvine).
