Pre-Order New 2024 Enhanced Restoration of WWII Classic THE STORY OF G.I. JOE



Greetings from Ignite!


We are excited to present the new enhanced restoration of the cinematic masterpiece THE STORY OF G.I. JOE, available soon on Blu-ray and DVD, just in time for its 80th anniversary. Directed by William A. Wellman, this 1945 WWII classic is based on the true-life experiences of renowned war correspondent and columnist Ernie Pyle. THE STORY OF G.I. JOE authentically portrays the camaraderie and bond between soldiers, a timeless tribute to unsung heroes who fought and bled for freedom. 


A limited edition, numbered 16"x20" poster of the cover art will be included free for the first 250 orders.





“The Story of G.I. Joe is a masterwork whose sum is far greater than its modest parts.” – Library of Congress


Take a look at our re-construction of the lost original trailer. Lost no more! It was reconstructed using the severely damaged 1945 original nitrate trailer provided by the Library of Congress.
