Nice review, Josh. I shall have this.

Hoping too that TT also releases The Gunfighter, another wonderful Fox teaming of Henry King and Gregory Peck. It’s been touted for release by Signal One in the UK, but keeps getting pushed back.

Thanks guys! I had missed this one when I was doing my big western binge in 2016/2017, and as I was watching it, I couldn’t believe that I had never seen it. I was surprised at both the level of violence and of the depth of the morality issues explored - it seemed very ahead of its time in that way.

Between this and Kino’s release of The Big Country, this has been a great year for Peck westerns on disc!

Looks like the good people at Twilight Time has done it, again.
Just when we think we've seen almost every film, comes along a title we've missed. And a quality one, at that; with a great cast, a great director, a legendary DP and, to top it all off, a great transfer.
These are the savoring moments of film-viewing, physical media and home theater.
Thanks for the review, Josh.

"Twentieth Century Fox has provided Twilight Time with yet another fantastic transfer"

Eh....most Twentieth Century Fox color films, especially the Technicolor films, have terrible transfers!
Very contrasty en very teal-ified!

Yeah, we heard that before by some people while others like myself think the transfers look fantastic.

Does anyone know how good/bad the iTunes HD streaming version of this film looks?
It looks okay, but I thought the TT BD looked better to my eyes with a more detailed presentation. Somewhere I posted my comparison thoughts either in my 'Crawdaddy' thread or the 'Daily Viewing' thread.

Edit: Okay, found my post from 2018, in which I compared the iTunes HD digital to the TT BD.

Thanks Robert! I wonder if it's possible that the streaming version has been updated in the past two years?
