When I saw the movie poster for Captain America hit my local theater sometime in late 1989 or early 1990, I got very excited. Then I waited and waited. Nothing. Eventually the movie would get some sort of spotty release before getting released on home video. I got my copy the day it came out (I worked in a video store) and I brought it home and watched it again and again. It was not perfect — the movie is flawed (budget problems), but I was starving for some Cap’, and was happy to have it. Sadly as time as time has gone by, my VHS copy has been chewed up really bad.
Now a new Captain America movie is on the horizon, which of course raises the profile of this earlier movie, which is finally getting re-released on DVD this July 19th. Here is the trailer for those of you who have never seen the film.
