“Men of steel! Women of fire!”
Released on December 11, 1942, Pittsburgh is a compelling drama that reunited The Spoilers stars John Wayne, Randolph Scott, and Marlene Dietrich. In this effort from director Lewis Seiler, Wayne stars as Pittsburgh Markham, an ambitious coal miner whose desire for success makes him self-centered. Scott is his best friend John “Cash” Evans, a kindly gent who also desires to find fortune in the coal industry. Their life paths are forever changed when they meet Josie “Hunky” Winters (Dietrich), a beautiful woman from humble coal-mining beginnings inspired them to follow their dreams. As Pittsburgh’s success grows, so does his arrogance…resulting in his alienation of the only people who truly cared for him. Can he find redemption and restore the relationships he damaged so badly?
Pittsburgh comes to Blu-ray via KL Studio Classics on September 10th, with special features that include an animated image gallery and a theatrical trailer. This story of friendship forged and ripped apart featuring three leads at the top of their game is an unforgettable viewing experience that will stick with you long after the credits have rolled.
