I just received 3 of the new Fox Cinemascope Westerns - THESE THOUSAND HILLS - THE PROUD ONES and THE LAST WAGON. While the latter two are in Stereo, These Thousand Hills is only Mono, (although it appears to have a fake stereo option as well) Either way it comes as a bitter dissapointment. Maybe Joe can throw some light on this. While I have at this point only had a quick preview, I think sound wise, THE LAST WAGON seems the best, as I detected some distortion on THE PROUD ONES. Picture quality on all 3 is quite good with decent sharpness ( considering those fuzzy early Scope lenses) there is also excellent color reproduction on both THE LAST WAGON and THE PROUD ONES, while These Thousand Hills looks quite acceptable. These are great additions to the collections of all Western Fans. PS. There is a Trailer for TWO FLAGS WEST on the discs, so is that coming soon?
