When people think of filmmaker John Ford, they generally think of westerns. While he directed other genres, his westerns always seem to come to the fore, although I personally love so many of his non-westerns, I've lost track of them.
Two Rode Together (1961) is B level Ford, but even at that level it begs one's attention. It's a loosely directed film, starring James Stewart and Richard Widmark, with the requisite Ford company along for the ride, along with Shirley Jones.
According to Julie Kirgo's always interesting liner notes, here quoting Joseph McBride's tome on director Ford (if you don't have a copy, what are you waiting for?) it was shot during a very low period in Ford's life. It shows.
Twilight Time's Blu-ray, via Columbia's Grover Crisp via Sony is, once again, typical Sony product. Nothing more. Nothing less.
And that's a good thing, as it looks as sounds as brilliant as it did when it opened in theatres in 1961.
Color, black levels, resolution, grain structure, all appear to be proper.
But one would expect that.
Second tier Ford, and yet an important production.
Shot at Alamo village, Brackettville, TX.
