4 Stars

Not too many 5s from these quarters lately, so it gives me a huge pleasure to bring your attention to a superb film, and one of Kirk Douglas’ best.

Lone are the Brave, 1962, in glorious black & white.

A few months ago, I was thrilled to be able to screen Universal’s gorgeous new 4k restoration on a 37 foot screen – in 4k.

And am pleased to report, that albeit at 1/4 resolution, the new Blu-ray from Kino beautifully mimics the theatrical DCP.

Nicely resolved, with almost charcoal-like blacks, accurate grain, and a gorgeous gray scale, this is perfection.

For those who may have never experienced this film, you’re in for a treat. From the pre-credit sequence onward, you know you’re in for a treat.

Excellant extras!
