Another one of the film editors at RKO Radio Pictures in the 1930’s and 1940’s who made the leap from the cutting room to the director’s chair (alongside Robert Wise and Mark Robson), John Sturges soon made himself one of the most reliable directors in Hollywood during the 1950’s. After earning his only Best Director Oscar nomination for MGM’s Bad Day at Black Rock (1955), he was brought to Paramount Pictures by producer Hal Wallis for the smash hit Gunfight at the O.K.

Paramount has given this movie its Blu-ray debut as part of their Paramount Presents line.

Thanks for the review. Kudos to pointing out Brian Hutton's directing career as I watched a couple of his Eastwood WWII movies not too long ago. One thing you might want to correct is that Matt Morgan's deceased wife wasn't a half breed, but a full blooded Native American.
