THE WAR WAGON
 
Product Source: Theatrical Theatrical Studio: Universal Theatrical Release: 5/13/1967
Synopsis: Two cinematic legends, John Wayne and Kirk Douglas, team up to seize a fortune in gold in the action-packed western classic, The War Wagon. Wayne plays Taw Jackson, a range-hardened rancher who’s hell-bent on capturing the infamous War Wagon, an ironclad stagecoach owned by a thieving cattle baron who robbed Taw of his gold years before. To get even, Jackson recruits Lomax (Douglas), a brash gunslinger, and a raucous crew of misfits and readies them to pull off one of the most impossible heists of all time.

Kind of a western Dirty Dozen. I will probably stick with the UK BD, which I thought was an excellent transfer.
Forget it, Jake. It's Chinatown.

I haven't picked up any of these UK blu-rays, so I'll be getting the Waynes and Eastwoods when they get released.  Though I still wonder what takes Universal so long to release the North American blu-rays after they release them in the UK.  It was the same situation with Cape Feare.

Same here. I was just about to buy the 4 westerns from Amazon.uk as they are currently on sale, but now I'll wait for the US versions because they will include Ultra-violet digital copies.

I received the UK version a few days ago (well I am in the UK). I've just zipped through it & I have to say I think the picture looks great, there's no mistaking that you're looking at an HD transfer. Like Big Jake, a minor Wayne, but still very enjoyable. Fingers crossed for, She Wore A Yellow Ribbon, They Were Expendable & In Harm's Way this year.

One of the nice things about not using Ultraviolet/digital copies (I give away/trash them) is that I don't have to wait. :)

I don't understand Ultraviolet/digital copies if you bought the BD.  Can you view the digital copy in high def?
