John Wayne is the Number #1 All Time Hollywood Movie Actor.  Through 2010, only a very few of his movies have been released on Blu-Ray.  John Wayne's regular DVDS are good sellers, and it has been very disappointing and suprising that only a very few of his movies have been released on Blu-Ray.  Hopefully all that will change as the month of May 2011 will see the release of 4 John Wayne Movies on Blu-Ray.


The Horse Soldiers 1959  MGM

The Comancheros  1961  Fox

Rio Lobo 1970   Paramount

Big Jake  1971 Paramount


Thanks to MGM, Fox, and Paramount.  Let us all hope the transfers are excellent.  May 2011 is going to be great for John Wayne fans!   Let us hope that the studios will now keep on releasing more John Wayne movies on Blu-Ray as soon as possible!

Warner Brothers thank you for releasing The Searchers, Rio Bravo, and The Green Berets on Blu-Ray!  Please release MCQ 1974 and The Train Robbers on Blu-Ray in 2011!


God Bless!


Robert

Among others, including yours,  I'd like to see:


The Sons of Katie Elder

Hatari!

Chisum

El Dorado

The War Wagon

In Harm's Way


While we're at it, Paramount, how about a 50th anniversary Elvis "Blue Hawaii" Blu-ray?!!

On a less serious note, how about:

MCLINTOCK!
DONOVAN'S REEF
NORTH TO ALASKA

All three are excellent choices, but I really want They Were Expendable, Operation Pacific and Sands of Iwo Jima

"The Quite Man" never even got a decent DVD release, as many times as it was re-issued on DVD.  I'm hoping they are saving for a fantastic Blu-ray - whoever it is that has this movie.  Let's hope we don't see that same 40th Anniversary VHS/Laserdisc Artisan transfer from '92 released - yet again - on BD.

I find it interesting that the two Wayne films being released in Blu from Paramount are owned by CBS through it's Center Cinema Films.  The last library S-DVD Paramount issued was Monte Walsh, which also was a Center Cinema Film.  CBS seems to be pushing their titles on through while Paramount just sits on its owned titles.  While I enjoy Big Jake and Rio Lobo and will purchase them, I wonder why these two get released with all the Wayne titles Paramount owns.  I think that gives a us a lot more hope that Scrooge may get a Blu-ray release this coming holiday season.

I hope the price for The Commancheros drops before release date. $31.99 at Amazon right now. That's way too high

It's a digibook release so I preordered it when it was 30% off MSRP because Amazon usually decreases the percentage off after initially listing such a title.  I had a coupon to use which also decreased the eventual price even more for me.

Here are some other options from dvdpricesearch.com. Amazon apparently is the high guy on the totem pole. One note is that the Walmart price does not include state sales tax. However the ship to store option cuts out the shipping.
