Thanks for this review. I greatly admire jack Webb's direction of Pete Kelly's Blues, an underrated movie, so I'll be interested to see what he did with material more familiar to him.

It's great Kino released this. I think it was on vhs but not on DVD, except maybe MOD.
Universal released it ten years ago with the Vault Series. It was not in widescreen and neither is the HD digital on iTunes. I'm looking forward to finally watching this movie in its widescreen format so I can discard that 2010 DVD.

Anyhow, thanks to Matt for a fine review as I preordered it during the past Target sale.

Cool news. Any hope of the '67 Dragnet TV series coming out on Blu-ray?
