    I'm not sure but I think Paramount owns the rights to this film. I would love to see it come to DVD. If anyone else shares a love for this film and would like to see it on DVD, please voice your opinion.

    • Gunfight at the OK Corral
    • Five Card Stud

    Cees-

    What are you waiting for? MGM's already released a nice DVD of this Aldrich classic.

    **Vera Cruz (1954) Robert Aldrich**

    Cees,

    I'm actually disappointed with the MGM dvd release of "Vera Cruz". It could have been done much better with an anamorphic presentation. Also, 3:10 to Yuma is coming out on April 2nd with Gunfight at the OK Corral and Hombre both having different June release dates.

    Robert,
    It's already on its way now. I believed that it was the audio that was less than optimal. Well, even if I had read your comment earlier, I would still have ordered the disc (you knew that [​IMG]), little chance it will be redone soon, I guess.
    Yes, I was waiting for 3:10 to Yuma and the Gunfight. Didn't know about Hombre, though. Thanks for alerting me!
    Speaking of Aldrich, my wife hopes they will bring out The Frisco Kid. One of her all-time favourites (that's partly because of Harrison Ford).
