For those who simply can’t wait a few more weeks to see Captain America on the big screen, MGM’s Manufacturing on Demand program is releasing the 1990, Matt Salinger Captain America movie on DVD.

During World War II, a brave American soldier (Matt Salinger) volunteers to undergo experiments to become a new super-soldier, codenamed “Captain America.” Infiltrating Germany to sabotage Nazi rockets pointed at the U.S., Captain America faces off with Nazi superhuman warrior Red Skull (Scott Paulin, The Right Stuff) who defeats the hero, throwing him into suspended animation. Frozen for 50 years, Captain America is found and revived only to find that Red Skull has changed identities and has targeted the President of the United States (Ronny Cox, RoboCop) for assassination. With America on the verge of utter chaos, it is up to one man to save the day!

    All I can remember of this movie is the Red Skull constantly playing a grand piano.

    starring THE Matt Salinger? Awesome! Every Captain America fan should see this film… if nothing else it will lower the bar enough that you are almost certain to love First Avenger. And in this movie’s defense, it was still about a hundred times better than the 1979 motorcycle Captain America movie.

      I beg to differ. While not a good Captain America movie, the Reb Brown movie version of the character is a better film in terms of its construction and overall storytelling. But then, I liked the 70’s Doctor Strange film, too…

        And I have all those movies on DVD too! Although, I think I might have my 70s Doctor Strange movie on the same disc as Parts: The Clonus Horror. Either that or with my copy of Evid Dead: The Musical, but I doubt it, I don’t think I’d have put those two together.

    I remember being rather put off by his only being in the costume briefly at the beginning and at the end of the movie.
