Based on a story by real-life spy Donald Downes, and co-scripted by another former spy, Paul Dehn (The Deadly Affair, Fragment of Fear), Anthony Asquith’s film follows an American airman sent into occupied France with orders to kill a suspected double agent... but the mission does not go according to plan.
Famous for its shocking violence and moral ambiguity, Orders to Kill won three BAFTA Awards, but caused a stir at the Cannes Film Festival due to its alleged ‘anti-American’ tone.

Most orders for in-stock items take less than 24 hours to ship (may take longer if you place an order over the weekend). Pre-orders are shipped as soon as the product arrives. International pre-orders may not come in before the street date. This is especially true with Australian pre-orders.
We only use USPS for all shipments. If there is an issue after your order ships you will need to contact your local post office.
All items that come with a slipcover will say so in the product page.
Pre-orders will not say WITH SLIPCOVER until the product comes in.
Slipcovers are not guaranteed to be in mint condition.
If you can order it, it's either in stock or a pre-order. If an item is out of stock you will not be able to add it to your cart. It's rare but our inventory may not be correct. So in some cases an item may have to be shipped separately.
We do not sell bootlegs. All product arrives from the distributor or is directly from the filmmakers. All items are new and sealed. Some indie titles or signed editions may not have shrinkwrap.
