What a joy it is to see this multi Oscar-nominated film finally presented in a video format that compliments its visual style and beauty rather than works against it. Prior public domain offerings were torturous to watch. And to have both the original release ("The North Star") as well as the repurposed rerelease, with heavy editing to change the focus and intent of the film -- well, that's almost too much to hope for. Also included is the original radio broadcast of the story. In all, I could not have asked for more. Thoroughly delighted! (Although captioning for the hearing impaired would be nice -- com'on Olive Films.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic WWII Propaganda Film 21 July 2014
By Michael W. Penn - Published on
Great WWII propaganda film! All star cast with hilarious opening scene of villagers of the Ukraine having dancing feast day. These were the people the Russians were starving to death so harshly that the Germans got a division of Ukraine volunteers to fight the soviets! The action sequences are great and the young leads, an older Jane Withers (former child star) and Farley Granger do good service as patriotic anti-Nazis. Great film and Blue Ray has to do a better job of it than the previous release which was barely watchable. The shortened version "Armored Attack" has all the pro-Soviet emphasis cut out.

2.0 out of 5 stars The North Star 18 Aug 2014
By Christopher - Published on
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I bought the Blu ray for the unedited version of this film entitled The North Star... what a wierd film, before we knew Stallin was as bad as or worse than Hitler. very strange film - almost feels like alternate reality.... ultimately not enjoyable for me - I just felt it was too contrary to what I grew up knowing... odd all around. I will watch Armored Attack at some later point - perhaps the excised content and new edit help the film but until then this is intersting and of value from a hiostoricalperspective - both film and actual history... people tend to forget that without the Russians we may not have won the European conflict.... and the Germany was fascist not communist - we grew to hate the commies in the aftermath of WW2...
