  Introducing Brando
  Featuring a powerhouse performance from Marlon Brando in his first feature film, THE MEN (1950) is a poignant reflection on the impact of war and life-changing injury, as well as the relationships that nourish the wounded as they fight their hardest battle yet. Written by Carl Foreman (High Noon) and directed by Fred Zinnemann (High Noon, From Here To Eternity), this landmark examination of masculinity and disability is presented on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK, released by the BFI in a Dual Format Edition (Blu-ray & DVD discs) on 16 May. Extras include a newly recorded audio commentary and an archival audio interview with writer Carl Foreman recorded in 1969.

Playing the war veteran Ken Wilocek, who has been paralysed from the waist down, Marlon Brando is backed by a stellar supporting cast, including Teresa Wright (Shadow of a Doubt), Everett Sloane (Citizen Kane) and Jack Webb (Pete Kelly's Blues).
