'JOE KIDD' PLAYS BY HIS OWN RULES.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Joe Kidd [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
screen legend 'Clint Eastwood' plays a familiar role as a no-nonsense

Many films from the same era have been released with, lets say, superior picture

Sadly I have little knowledge of the technical in's and out's........I can only comment
on how I see-it so to speak.
