    Yes indeed.

    Just took the DVD out and watched it last week. I can take another viewing in the near future.

    Been waiting and waiting, and given the quality of everything coming from Warner Archive recently, I have high, high, HIGH hopes.

    Thank you Noach for this news! My God, one of our absolute favorite Westerns, finally done right by the Wonderful Warner Archive Collection...it should look astounding, what a Great Film with Two Immortals of the Genre!...hopefully, more Peckinpah to come...I have been recently viewing the Boetticher directed Randy Westerns, which look beautiful on DVD...and daydreaming about what they would look like in HD...of course, WAC's BD's of Bad Day at Black Rock and She Wore a Yellow Ribbon fuel my imagination, as they were filmed at the same locales...Lone Pine and the Alabama Hills, Old Tucson, Coronado, Saguero and Monument Valley...

    I hate to be the one to nitpick the cover art, but one could get the idea that Mariette Hartley was the lead!

    Well her subplot does dominate the middle 50 minutes of the film. My only issue with the film.

    I see that WAC has also announced 36 Hours (1964) with James Garner, Eva-Marie Saint and Rod Taylor for Blu...they certainly have maintained a brisk pace of about 4 BD upgrades or new to Blu releases per month...Great!

    Question: Is that the usual lingo? 1080p remaster? Was trying to remember if that's what they say for all releases.

    Just got confirmation - new image harvest off a new IP - color me a very happy camper.

    One has to applaud Warner that they now often go with a 1080p remaster from an IP which both makes for easier color timing and cleanup compared to 4k scan of the OCN. I would not be surprised if by doing that they can release three times as many movies compared to going the 4k / OCN route.

    It will be interesting to see how the new Blu-ray compares to the HD version that already was available via Amazon and Vudu - that one looked nice already.

    Did Vudu HD ever go to a 2.35 AR? They were showing it in 1.78 the last time I checked.

    I only remember that when vudu still had a preview I checked the first minute or something and that was in scope. I ultimately decided to get the Amazon version as it looked more textured. I can confirm that the Amazon HD version is in the original scope format for the whole length of the movie.

    I saw Ride The High Country on TCM (UK) in HD about six months ago & I thought it looked fantastic, so looking forward to the Blu-ray.
