On July 19, MGM Home Entertainment will release, as part of their Limited Edition (MOD) Collection, Captain America. This 1990 film starring Matt Salinger will be available on DVD for the first time. (Of course, this is an unofficial tie-in to the big-screen Marvel movie Captain America: The First Avenger, out three days later on July 22.)
The earlier Captain America tells the origin of the superhero as Steve Rogers becomes a super-soldier and fights the Nazi Red Skull (Scott Paulin), who puts him in suspended animation for 50 years. Now, in modern day, the Red Skull is trying to assassinate the President (Ronny Cox)! Also in the movie are Ned Beatty, Darren McGavin, Michael Nouri, and Melinda Dillon. Rated PG-13, the film runs an hour and 37 minutes. I’m hoping to get a copy for review, so stay tuned!
