Cinematographer Bert Glennon’s work, shines through in Criterion’s most recent release via their agreement with Fox.
John Ford’s 1939 black & white production, with Henry Fonda in the lead, not only stands the test of time, but does it beautifully, thanks to a 35mm nitrate print, held by MOMA, which was used as the basis of the new work.
The fact that a print was the base source, holds out hope for other films that may no longer survive with prime original elements.
A magnificent Blu-ray, with (typically) a ton of extras.
More Ford on Blu-ray, please…
