The sky’s the limit for adventure! Two of history’s most fabled flyboys square off in daring, acrobatic duels of death in Von Richthofen and Brown, a high-flying tale of famous battles and infamous daredevils. Baron Manfred von Richthofen (John Phillip Law, Death Rides a Horse), Germany’s legendary Red Baron, is an aristocratic knight of the skies. But his chivalrous sense of honor doesn’t mean he’s merciful—some eighty pilots have lost their lives to this steel-willed ace of aces. In contrast, Canadian wheat farmer Roy Brown (Don Stroud, Search and Destroy) couldn’t care less about honor. He lives, the enemy dies—in any way Brown can make it happen. So, when these two very different men go head-to-head in a winner-take-all showdown, it’s a swooping, bullet-filled confrontation that puts their skill—and their courage—to the ultimate test. The stellar cast includes Barry Primus (Avalanche), Corin Redgrave (When Eight Bells Toll), Hurd Hatfield (The Picture of Dorian Gray), Stephen McHattie (Jesse Stone: Stone Cold) and Ferdy Mayne (The Fearless Vampire Killers). Wonderfully shot by Michael Reed (On Her Majesty’s Secret Service), with a screenplay by Joyce Hooper Corrington (The Omega Man) and John William Corrington (Boxcar Bertha). Top-notch direction by legendary filmmaker Roger Corman (The Secret Invasion, Target: Harry, Tales of Terror).
