Film information

Story: This release combines two movies from the early 1950s. In 'The Big Trees' (1952), a religious settlement is under threat from unscrupulous businessmen who want to get rid of the settlers, strip the land of sequoias, and thereby destroy the environment. Jim Fallon (Kirk Douglas) is one of these men but his plans involve leaving the settlers in peace. With a violent confrontation between the two sides on the cards, Fallon starts to reassess his own behaviour and begins to wonder whether he is on the right side. 'The Big Lift' (1950) is a 1950 film about the Berlin Airlift. It starts in a semi-documentary style before giving way to tell the stories of two fictional U.S. Air Force men caught up in events. Sgt. Hank Kowalski, played by Paul Douglas, has a hatred of Germans that proves resistant to change, while Sgt. Danny McCullough (Montgomery Clift) seeks the affections of a beautiful German war widow. His pursuit leads him to experience the seamy side of postwar Berlin.
