Having always been a fan and firm defender of this film, I felt I should add my recommendation for the restored 2-disc DVD edition, which I am proud to own.

Definitely worth a view, even by those who aren't aware of the film's history or those who don't like westerns. Looks great, the acting's great, and the script gives plenty of food for thought - trust me, the length and pace is not an issue.

At this price, there is little ground for complaint, but you only get what you pay for. The case itself is sturdy enough with basic (not great) padding, and the (inner and outer) storage pouches do the job.

The disappointing elements are the handle (no padding to speak of, basic stitching that has started to come apart around 8 months later) and the strap (not detachable, no shoulder tab, uncomfortable and unstable when carrying the bag on the shoulder).

With hindsight, if I had spent 5-10 more, both of these elements would have been significantly better.
