A Western (1967) by Blake Edwards - who would have thunk it. I had never even heard of this film until recently and hopefully it turns out to be a worthy addition. James Coburn heads a cast that includes Carroll O'Conner, Margaret Blye, Claude Akins, James Whitmore and Bruce Dern. It is showcased at the opening credits as a "Techniscope" production - another variation on the old Cinmascope etc. - or at least Paramount's version. If someone would like to comment on this I could always use more insight on the process. The OAR is 2:35, enhanced of course. The opening tune, set against some good photography is called " The Ballad Of Waterhole #3 ( Code Of The West ) sung by Roger Miller. I seem to remember his career was cut short by an untimely death. Sounded quite good, with that "studio" sound coming through nicely. Dialogue was also fine and the audio is listed as Mono but it was very clean with no distortion. As for the picture itself the transfer looks very solid with very good colors and I could not see any artifacting or damage - it looked great on my 27" tv just so those with a large display are not mislead - still I think it will hold up well. Interesting, offbeat Western comedy that I enjoyed watching. Looks like another solid effort from Paramount. Two other releases also debuting on May 17 are Blue and Johnny Reno.
