I picked this up tonight and have been watching it with mouth on floor. You will never hear me bitching about Columbia, because their occasional and annoying faux pas will never outweigh the incredible catalog titles they are making available in their OAR in stunning transfers. They are putting out catalog titles that no other studio in their right mind would put out, titles that really don't have a chance in hell of being big sellers. I mean, first The Swimmer, then the gorgeous new DVD of Bonjour Tristesse (which I wrote about here a few days ago) and now Mr. Frankenheimer's The Horsemen, one of only three Frankenheimer films I'd never seen. Like the film or not (and so far I'm liking it very much - an hour into it), this transfer will knock your socks off. It is sharp as a tack, perfect color, and just amazing thus far. I don't know what their source was but whatever it was it was in magnificent shape (save for some dirt specks, which I only bring up because that seems to be a big bugaboo with reviewers here at the HTF - I don't really give a flying Wallenda about a few dirt specks - the ones here are on display mainly in the opening titles). If you're a Frankenheimer fanatic, it's a must. The action scenes in the first hour are some of the finest things he ever directed.
