    Aussie Distributor Shock has released Winchester '73 as part of their Hollywood Gold Series blu-ray releases.

    I have several of their releases (Lifeboat, The Devils Brigade, Judgment at Nuremberg, Exodus) and they are legitimate licensed releases. They are also Region-Free. The qualify of the transfers are similar to Kino Lorber, TT, etc.

    It is available from a variety of Australian online retailers.

    This has been showing up on TV in HD in the UK for some years now, looking very nice. I'm surprised it hasn't been released in Germany yet, as they license many Universal westerns. It's a great western.

    This is a great western and there seems to be a decent master available so hopefully we will see this in other regions. The one Mann/Stewart western that really looks bad even when aired on OTA HD is The Naked Spur so hopefully Warner will see fit to work on it at some point.

    I have no way to affordably import Australian releases. A German release had been announced last year from Explosive Media but it has yet to materialize.

    I ordered Winchester 73 today and it was about $16-17 USD shipped. Not bad.

    Yeah, I've never ever seen a good quality version of The Naked Spur. It is airing again on Turner Classic Movies later this week, but I have to believe it will be the same disappointing presentation that I saw the last time I caught it on TCM. I haven't seen Winchester '73 since I viewed it on laser disc, so I'm sure this release will look better. :)

    What I saw aired on OTA HD certainly looked very presentable, I think you will be happy with it :)
    As for The Naked Spur I am really looking forward to have this in better quality and hopefully looking much better if not as nice as the recent releases of The Hanging Tree and Ride the High Country.

    I see it at JB Hifi for $21AU shipped to the US, or about $16-17USD. I bought The Day of the Jackal from them last summer.
