THE STEEL HELMET
September 25 only
A Fuller Life
With the Korean War still in its first year, Fuller created the first American feature film to deal directly and specifically with that conflict. It tells the story of a gritty unit of US soldiers caught up in the hellish surroundings of a brutal war and, in the process, manages to emerge as a simmering statement on the futility of war itself. Low-budget and typically independent. Superbly photographed by Ernest Miller. Starring Gene Evans, Robert Hutton, Steve Brodie, James Edwards, Sid Melton. Written and directed by Samuel Fuller. In Black & White. 16mm. 84 mins. USA.
