John Wayne's 1976 swan song, and what many consider among the best of the Duke's westerns, The Shootist, has been released on Blu-ray in Germany with a fairly amazing 1.85:1 widescreen transfer. I had forgotten the stature of the cast in this film, but it has been a real pleasure to revisit The Shootist. One word of caution if you are planning to import this disc. It is region B locked, so you will have to be able to accommodate that. If you are interested in an English cover, I have been inspired to create a custom cover. It's getting late, but I decided to share this work in progress. I'll post the finished cover later this weekend. Here's the finished cover. Uploaded to the usual places.
