Today in history, November 1, 1954, in North Africa, Algerian nationalists began their successful 8-year rebellion against French rule - a period that's realistically and rivetingly documented in Gillo Pontecorvo's landmark 1966 film, Battle Of Algiers; a film we've mentioned a number of times previously on this site, and strongly recommend you see NOW if you haven't already!

It was once streaming on Netflix, but no longer is (I just checked); however, you can purchase the Criterion Collection 3-disc set on Blu-ray or DVD, both loaded with very informative extra features!

It's explosive trailer follows below:
