Anyone have an idea what “1.0 stereo is supposed to be?

Great news, so those rumours were correct. Maybe Arrow will release this both sides of the pond, like they did with The Apartment & Gosford Park.

Arrow Academy’s Facebook page also seems to indicate that this will be available in the US in addition to the UK.
Which means November 12th instead of November 11th in the UK?

I'll be getting this from Diabolik as soon as the beginning of the month comes. That way I will get it before release date and all.

As much as I love The Naked Spur, Bend of the River and Winchester 73 Mann/Stewart westerns and also really like but not love The Man from Laramie, Thunder Bay, Strategic Air Command and The Glenn Miller story this one has never done much for me. So I think I will stick with the DVD unless this on sale really cheap sometime .

My two favourites are, Bend Of The River & The Far Country. I enjoy Winchester '73, but find The Naked Spur a bit overwrought, & The Man From Laramie very anemic, despite the shocking shooting the hand scene.

This was my first Mann-Stewart western. I loved everything about it, even Ruth Roman. It was a print with exquisite color & ever since this film has looked pretty ragged and dull (including the DVD, in my opinion). So I will definitely be getting this, and hoping that Arrow will work some of that same magic they did on THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN.

What do you mean, even Ruth Roman? :lol: The presence of the lovely Ruth Roman makes a good movie even better and she's usually the only reason to sit through a bad one.

Perhaps, he's not a fan of Ruth Roman like there are people that are not fans of Bette Davis.:)

Surely you jest! :) If they exist, I wouldn't want to meet one face to face!
Sorry to shock you, Thomas, but I was not at all a fan of Ruth Roman--I detested her in STRANGERS ON A TRAIN, for instance--until I saw her in THE FAR COUNTRY, and I must confess in general she still leaves me unmoved. But she is excellent in THE FAR COUNTRY.

The Man from Laramie is so beautifully shot that I could not take my eyes off it even if its story was a bit weaker than the others, the cinematography more than makes up for it.

The Far Country is usually not held in that high regard when people discuss the Mann/Stewart westerns and I cannot really understand why as to me it holds up very well and that includes Ruth Roman who is really good in this one.

Roman's role in Strangers On A Train is the least interesting character in the movie. Meryl Streep couldn't have done anything with that role as written so I give Roman a pass on that one. If you haven't already, check her out in The Window (1949), Barricade (1950), Three Secrets (1950), Lightning Strikes Twice (1951), Tomorrow Is Another Day (1951), Down Three Dark Streets and Five Steps To Danger (1957) to see her at her best.
