First,I bought Stagecoach-San Fernando blu-ray from amazon marketplace Germany at a very reasonable price.
I,ve loved this version from the first,seeing it at the Cinema,aye,it,s a remake,I,m taking nothing away from the original Classic from John Ford,this remake stands on it,s own as an excellent western,in many ways it,s better than the original.
Now,the blu-ray review,I urge all lovers of this "remake" to buy this blu-ray, spectacular picture quality,sound too,it was an absolute pleasure to watch this on blu-ray,I give the Guys who transferred this western to blu-ray FULL PRAISE,a truly magnificent blu-ray!!!!!
When you think of the original Ford Classic, and it,s splendid views of Monument Valley/Utah, Gordon Douglas did remarkabley well taking the film to Colorado,the scenery is fabulous,GREAT Cinematography!!!!!
All in ALL Guys,this blu-ray is a MUST-BUY,and there,s no subtitles,sometimes we have to put up with forced subtitles,particularly from France,a few times from Germany,so just to let you know,English/German Audio!!!!!
ps,EXCELLENT Customer Service from amazon marketplace Germany.
The region one Twilight Time DVD is a superb anamorphic wide screen (2.35) transfer.
This film attempts to update the original with more bloodshed and a modern cast of stars, and also sets it further north in Sioux country. Alex Cord has the unenviable task of following in John Wayne's footsteps. How on earth is he meant to trump Wayne's Winchester twirling introduction to the film. Alas he is more akin to a village footballer trying to fill in at Barcelona for Lionel Messi. His first appearance is a giant wet lettuce by comparison. Van Heflin as Curly the Sheriff simply looks old and tired, like he was killing time until his pay cheque arrives. Ann-Margret is badly miscast as the prostitute Dallas, looking more like one of the Vestal Virgins. Keenan Wynn wildly overacts as Luke Plummer with a few loose screws. Bing Crosby strives manfully as the drunken Doc Boone in his last movie role.
Perhaps I am being a little harsh, and if you haven't, shame on you, seen the original then this is an okay time filler for the genre fan. The scenery is beautifully shot in colour and there is plenty of action. But if you have and loved the original as I have, then it is probably best to give this piece of sixties kitsch a wide berth. Worse was sadly to come! In 1986 they dusted off a few old country and western stars for another remake. That one was so bad it made the 1966 effort look good! Let's hope there are no more remakes to sully the memory of a film that Orson Welles described as a perfect textbook of film making.

This is a great transfer in terms of picture and sound. Unfortunately the French subtitles cannot be defeated. It looks like a full restoration was done.Published 18 months ago by Marklee
