    As a 70s movie fan, its nice to see Universal releasing Macraes late in life curio Mustang Country-which is more akin to a Wilderness Family/ nature film then a Western-but still very enjoyable with an energetic performance from Joel MaCrae.
    A great companion piece to 1976's other aging cowboy film -The Shootist. Hopefully this will be out on Blu ray soon -its one of my favorites . John Wayne won his Oscar for the wrong Paramont western!
    1976 was a good year for westerns: Breakhart Pass, The Missouri Breaks, The Last Hard Men , Buffalo Bill and he Indians, Return of a Man Called Horse, From Noon til Three, The Shootist -I think MUSTANG was the last of that years to be released.
    Paramount has a coupla other 70s westerns needing better transfers - A Gunfight and The Deserter have been in pd Hell, while their tv movie sequel (should add this o another thread I started about tv movie sequels to flms) to True Grit with Warren Oats as Rooster Cogburn would be fun to see also.
    Othwise-virtually all of the v 70 few westerns are on DVD.
