I've watched all six of the films with no problems. I am very pleased with the quality of these releases. I am hopeful that Warners will release some more of these Randolph Scott westerns in the future. There are several more that are not on dvd as yet.
There are some good films that were made by Tyrone Power that have not yet made their way to dvd. Any chance these films will see the light of dvd? Diplomatic Courier King of the Khyber Rifles American Guerilla in the Philipines Prince of Foxes Captain From Castile The Luck of the Irish
Another film that should fit nicely into the Fox Noir series would be The Diplomatic Courier with Tyrone Power. I saw it recently on the Fox Movie Channel and thought it was quite good. It is not currently on video anywhere.
I haven't yet seen the current version of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. But having seen the 1988 version on the BBC video series, I have ordered the new version. I thought the movie was quite enjoyable. So, am looking forward to the dvd.
I am normally an early adopter. I jumped on the dvd bandwagon in 1997 when they first came out, dropping my laserdiscs. But for now, I can't get excited about HD-DVD. I do not have an HD TV set, although mine is HD Ready. The presentation of most dvd's in their current format more than satisfy...
Just watched the Tango dvd Zulu Dawn on my 42" 16:9 TV. I would agree that its aspect ratio in its current configuration is about 1.85:1. It's definitely not "full screen", but since the original aspect ratio of the title was 2.35:1, there must be some level of P&S involved. There is quite a bit...
Okay, I've not heard of that before. Just from my own untrained eye, it certainly looked wider that 1.85:1 I've had it on an old Beta tape for some time so this dvd will definitely be an improvement on that. If it should ever come out at the proper aspect ratio, I'd jump on it.
I just got my R1 copy of Zulu Dawn. I placed it in my DVDRom and determined that it is widescreen. Not sure if it is 2.20:1 or 2.35:1. It is not anamorphic. Can't vouch for the video quality just yet. (Just checked IMDB and they call for an aspect ratio of 2.35:1. So, I'll go with that)
There are far too few films released to video that were directed by Elia Kazan. One of my favorites is Man on a Tightrope. To my knowledge, this has never been released to video in any form. Boomerang and Wild River are two others. C'mon Fox, give us some good releases of these films on dvd.
Better yet, there is a 2 pack of Man From Snowy River and Man From Snowy River II. They both have DTS soundtracks and anamorphic widescreen. Just finished watching them and they are very good. http://www.ezydvd.com.au/item.zml/228111
I just saw Jubal with Glenn Ford and Ernest Borgnine on the Westerns channel. That is certainly one of the better westerns I have seen in a long time. The story and the cast were outstanding - rings circles around most present day movies. How about a dvd of this in its proper aspect ratio of...
How about it, Columbia, release "The Violent Men" (1955) on dvd in its proper aspect ratio? I saw it recently on the Westerns Channel and it started off in widescreen and then went to pan and scam. In my opinion, this is a gem of a movie starring Glenn Ford, Edward G. Robinson, and Barbara Stanwyck.
