Comments:

This is the same transfer of the original Paramount release - exact same disc in fact. The DVD has simply been reissued and repackaged to be included in a few Boxset options (of which we recommend the 10-disc'er, exclusive to Amazon, if you don't own any part of these or just one or two already). The image appears to be un-manipulated - is quite dark but I'll wager pretty close to its theatrical appearance - original audio - those awful yellow subtitles and a trailer as the only extra, but the price is right - especially when bundled in one of the boxsets. For western fans this may fall short of Mann or Boetticher but its Wayne in prime form and one of his better efforts (and lets not forget Dino too!).
