I quite enjoyed Madigan tonight. I thought I had seen it, but while watching nothing seemed overly familiar. Color was a bit drab, but the transfer was sharp and clean. I did have to chuckle with the two main stars having wives/girl friends twenty to thirty years younger than they.

Color is drab indeed - another brown mess off a fading internegative.
You're right, but I'm glad Kino released it, otherwise, I would be stuck with my 21 year old DVD.

Funny thing is I had never seen it before but when I watched it I assumed that was how it was supposed to appear considering the mostly brown and yellow cover of the Bluray artwork. I enjoyed the film, Widmark is great as usual.

I had a 16mm IB Tech print of it - I love the movie and the color was great and matched all the printed by Tech features Universal did in that era. The Jimmy Stewart westerns Kino just released have great color.

Madigan is a cop who rose from
the dead. He was killed in the movie, but was resurrected
four years later as part of the NBC Wednesday Mystery Movie.
Thinking I had seen the film, it must be the (short-lived) television series that I was remembering.

Funny stuff. I was going through a box of DVDs to see what I wanted to watch and I found a region two DVD of Madigan. So, I brought it inside and took a look at it. Guess what? Perfect color, just like it should look. Obviously the detail is not Blu-ray detail, although it upscales nicely, but, for me, it's like watching a different movie, minor as that may seem to most. Face tones are right, blues are true blue, greens pop. So, if I need to see Madigan it's this DVD I'll be watching.
