An absolute blast of a film now given a DVD it deserves!,
This review is from: North West Frontier  [DVD] (DVD)
In one of my favourite action/adventure films, Kenneth More gives one of his best-ever performances, ably supported by a sprightly supporting cast including Lauren Bacall and the inimitable Wilfrid Hyde-White. The direction by J. Lee Thompson (The Guns of Navarone) is lean with little pause for breath or thought and the action scenes themselves put a lot of other films to shame!
The picture quality on this DVD is leagues ahead of the VHS; its pin sharp, in its original CinemaScope 2.35:1 aspect ratio but sadly not anamorphically enhanced. But as this is the first time I've seen it in its full widescreen glory I'm not complaining!
One to keep and treasure.
