Having just watched Day of the Outlaw with Robert Ryan on TCM. I found myself wanting to watch Ryan and James Stewart in The Naked Spur.

The Naked Spur is a Warner property right? Anyone know of any plans to release this?

With the Universal Anthony Mann westerns out, it should mean there is more interest in this now.

P.S. Day of the Outlaw needs a DVD release, too. Who owns this?

Warner does own the rights to Naked Spur & I've been requesting this title for years.

I've heard no rumors regarding a DVD release though. Posted Image

While we're on the subject of Anthony Mann I'm also dying for a DVD release of Man of the West from MGM.

I think we'll probably see THe Naked Spur and other Westerns on DVD soon. Broken Arrow (1950) is another one that comes to mind. They seem to sell pretty good.

I also look forward to the day when THE NAKED SPUR (1953) makes it to R1 DVD (MAN OF THE WEST (1958), too).

As for the terrific, unjustly-neglected DAY OF THE OUTLAW (1959), it was a United Artists release, thus a DVD edition would be from MGM.

Speaking of which, I watched it because I was impressed with the harsh spooky winter scenes it showed, which were unlike anything I've seen in a B&W movie. I'm not sure how I feel about how it ended though:

The inner-personal conflict between Starrett (Ryan's character) and the the bad guys seemed to dissipate as the harsh weather and greed began killing off the bad guys while he waited (since they couldn't kill him because they needed him), and then it was over.


(I guess that's kinda off-topic for the software forum.)

I'll also buy any of Mann's films released on DVD.

Plus, all of Budd Boetticher's westerns, particularly his cycle of films with Randolph Scott, would be most welcome.

Another enthusiastic vote for NAKED SPUR. Hopefully, Warner Bros will be doing a western promotion soon, including that title.

In my western top ten; The Naked Spur is a marvellous western which features a brilliant performance from James Stewart.

Just a heads up to let people know that Naked Spur will be broadcast Thursday Apr 29 on Cinemax.

Wish this was coming out on DVD, though!

I really enjoy Anthony Mann pictures.

Sorry to resurrect such an old thread but I was wondering if anybody knows if The Naked Spur will get a region 2 release.I have the other 4 Anthony Mann/James Stewart westerns on R2 and I would like to complete the set.
