It could be that Paramount's rights to the underlying material (Al Capp's comic strip) has lapsed and needs to be renegotiated. I haven't heard anything to that effect, but that would be the most likely rights issue.
That is the issue that I thought I read something about.

Latest Addition to the Paramount Presents Line Debuts June 15, 2021

Kirk Douglas and Anthony Quinn headline the suspenseful classic LAST TRAIN FROM GUN HILL, arriving for the first time on Blu-ray in the Paramount Presents line June 15, 2021 from Paramount Home Entertainment.



A gripping Western from director John Sturges—one of the greatest filmmakers of the genre—LAST TRAIN FROM GUN HILL has been remastered from a 6K film transfer of the original VistaVision negative for exceptional picture quality. The limited-edition Blu-ray Disc™ includes a new Filmmaker Focus with film historian Leonard Maltin, access to a digital copy of the film, as well as original theatrical trailers for Last Train from Gun Hill, Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, The Furies, and The Black Orchid. The Blu-ray comes in collectible packaging featuring a foldout image of the film’s theatrical poster and an interior spread with key movie moments.



Synopsis

LAST TRAIN FROM GUN HILL
follows U.S. Marshal Matt Morgan (Kirk Douglas) on the trail of his wife’s killer. Adding a dark twist to the tale, the suspect's father is Morgan's longtime friend, cattle baron Craig Beldon (Anthony Quinn). Morgan is determined to capture the killer and take him away by the 9:00 train, against all odds.

Brad, .....I won't be getting mine for a few days. The PQ is Stunning ? That's Great news. One of my many Favorite Westerns from the 50's. I Love those VistaVision Westerns. Does it look Better than the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral Bluray ??

I'm waiting until this evening to officially watch it. But yes, the transfer is stunning, it is beyond my expectations. You will be very happy. I'm with you, it and O.K. Corral two of my absolute favorite westerns also. I was happy enough to just get it on Blu-ray, but wow.

I just got done watching the Blu-ray in its entirety. It's even more beautiful on my 65" OLED than that new HD digital. Furthermore, the English Mono Dolby TrueHD track sounds much better than the iTunes audio. Also, I watched the Filmmaker Focus with Leonard Maltin which runs a little over seven minutes long and learned a couple of things about the film's production that I never knew beforehand.

Yes, I just watched the "Gunfight at the O.K. Corral" Blu-ray last month and this 2021 Blu-ray surpasses it both video and audio-wise.
