I wouldn't exactly call "Silverado" a recent western since in another three months or so, it will be 25 years since it's release year.  A recent western like "Open Range" would more likely have that sound effect you're looking for.  Besides that minor difference in opinion, thanks for the review as I'm looking forward to buying this BRD.

You know how it is, Crawdaddy. For folks of our vintage (Rich and me, maybe even you), 1985 just doesn't feel that long ago.

Thanks, Rich! I've been looking forward to this one, and although I had faith that Sony would do a good job, I'm happy to have confirmation. (I wonder how many people here remember the very first DVD with its botched AR.)

I remember it and have that and the fixed version.

25 years sure doesn't seem like so long ago to me but i see Robert's point.
This and Open Range are my 2 favorite recent westerns.

I guess I didn't phrase that very well. I meant to say that one would expect to hear "whistling bullets" in a more recent western, but not necessarily from one made in 1985. Your point is well taken.

Good to hear this one got the right treatment though it would've been nice to have all the previous extras ported -- guess I might just keep the old DVD for that.  Will probably pick this up at some point.
