Comments:

Firstly, this is an EXCELLENT western - easily worthy of being digitally released through normal channels. Glenn Ford looking his studly best with maybe a few too many lines - and perfect support from the likes of heavenly wife, Jeanne Crain, acrobatic town youth Russ Tamblyn, gruff and snarling baddie Broderick Crawford, good ol'boy henchman Noah Beery Jr. and plenty of others. I wouldn't say this is perfect - but it's not that far off either and deserves it's 7.0 score on IMDb.

Once again it's a single-layered DVD-R but progressive - and anamorphic - and looking fairly decent on my system. Contrast is better than we have seen from some of the Archive and the image is consistent and pretty clean. I have watched it twice so far.

No subtitles - and, unremarkable but, clear audio with no extras save the Archive advert.

It's a shame that this is the only way to get the film (my mistake - there is a French DVD available that we may compare to - although it is 1.33) - but, in this case, the indulgence will be worth it. Fans of the genre shouldn't hesitate - and those who can appreciate Glenn Ford near his best and the statuesque Jeanne Crain. I really enjoyed my viewing.
