Channel Premiere: The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse (1962)

TCM: Saturday 13 October, 11.30pm

When the young scion of a prominent family returns to Buenos Aires and reveals his sympathies for the Nazi party, the ailing patriarch warns him that his actions will destroy the family and unleash War, Conquest, Famine and Death – The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. After patriarch Julio Madariaga (Lee J. Cobb) dies, his family scatters to different European countries. Heinrich von Hartrott (Karl Boehm) rises within the German ranks; Julio Desnoyers (Glenn Ford) enjoys the good life in Paris, even when the Germans occupy the city, and Chi-Chi Desnoyers (Yvette Mimieux) joins the French Resistance. But when Julio falls in love with Marguerite (Ingrid Thulin), he begins to understand the Nazis – and that he must make a stand in the fight against evil.

Directed by Academy Award winner Vincente Minnelli and based on the novel by Vicente Blasco Ibáñez.
