Disc 1. North Star: "Kolya, Kurin, Damian, and Marina are Ukraine farmers whose whole way of life is turned upside down when Germany, in disregard of former treaties, takes over the land in an iron-fisted occupation. Many of the enraged farmers take up arms in opposition of the Nazi, heading to the countryside to fight, while the people left behind destroy their crops rather than relinquish them to the German regime"--Container. Submarine base: "It is World War II and the Nazis have just sunk an American ship. The ship's engineer Jim Taggart survives and is rescued by a local fisherman off the coast of South America. Taggart recognizes the fisherman as Joe Morgan, a former New York gangster. Morgan has been living on the island, lying low and staying at a halfway house that also serves as a bar for the island's farmers and traders. Soon Taggart discovers that Morgan has been selling torpedoes to the Nazis but he doesn't know that Morgan has designed the missiles to explode when the German boats go to sea, thus sinking them. Confusion and mayhem result when the Allies and the Nazis question just whom Morgan is working for"--Container.

They make their raid on Makin Island, resulting in a volatile confrontation that will go down in history"--Container. The sell out: "An action-drama centered on a former CIA operative who grudgingly rejoins the spy-game due to the machinations of his one-time student, a screw up who goes to work for the Soviets. As his job drags him deeper into a dangerous and under-handed world, the student wants out of the agency and out of the U.S.S.R. But the man's choices have made him a target and now both the United States and Russia want him dead, sending their most able hit men to do it"--Container

"As the remnants of an American battalion fights the German army for control of a French village, four soldiers recall how they came to the battlefields of World War I. The first young wounded soldier, Russell, called 'Bud, ' begs his commanding officer, Sergeant Bill Thatcher, to tell his mother that he had been selfish and then recalls the following scene: Although his mother pleads with him to stay on the farm and not jeopardize his life in a faraway war, he ignores her and enlists. After telling his story, Bud dies in Bill's arms. Soon after, in France, another dying soldier, Lew Cavanaugh, recounts to Bill how he came to enlist: A wealthy New York playboy, Lew invites Ina, his latest conquest, to his apartment. When his former mistress telephones, Lew puts her off by telling her that he has enlisted in the army. Ina, overhearing the lie, proudly throws her arms around Lew and, assuming that he will be shipped out the next morning, promises to give him a night to remember. In France, after he is nicked in the ear by a passing bullet, 'K-P' private Jim Mobley remembers his wife, 'Mlle.' Fritzi, a vaudeville knife thrower who doesn't understand why men wage war, and who becomes very upset when her housekeeping husband announces his intention to enlist. Back on the battle grounds, Jim finds Bill at the machine gun and listens as he tells the story of his fiancée in New Orleans: On the day before their wedding, Bill informs German-born Katherine that he would rather fight Germans overseas than marry a German in America. Despite her impassioned call to reason, Katherine cannot convince Bill that war is meaningless. Before blowing up a German-controlled bridge, Bill confesses to Jim that Katherine was wiser than he. After Jim and Bill are shelled, they are taken to a Red Cross hospital, where Katherine finds them and convinces the German doctors to allow her to donate blood for Bill's life-saving transfusion. Armistice is declared, and generously decorated, Bill and Jim toast to peace with Katherine"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940

Eddie, a three-time loser, tries to go straight with his bride Jo in a hostile society. They are caught up in an inescapable web of circumstantial evidence. What was apparently a realistic variant on the Bonnie and Clyde story in script form, under Lang's direction, became a dark, expressionistic tale of persecuted innocence. The film ironically reverses the legal tenet that one is innocent until proven guilty. Eddie's guilt is assumed but he is actually guilty only at the moment when his innocence is finally established
