A sprawling epic tracing the fortunes of several generations of an American pioneer family as they move West and cope with the Civil War. The film's several sections were made by different directors, including Henry Hathaway and John Ford. Spencer Tracy narrates, while Henry Fonda, Gregory Peck, James Stewart and John Wayne top the all-star bill. Not to be confused with the 1970s television series.

A fantastic commentary is also added by filmmaker David Strohmaier, Director of Cinerama, Inc. John Sitting, Film Historian Rudy Behlemer, Music Historian Jon Burlingame and Stuntman Loren James which throws so much new light on the making of the movie.
For those who have never seen the film; sit back and enjoy.
For those who have seen the film many times on TV or video, and longed for the day.....welcome for the first time to "HOW THE WEST WAS WON" as it should be seen.
I bought it initially to try out my new Blueray player but boy did I get a surprise. The restoration is outstanding. State of the art digital technology has been used to remove the annoying vertical lines cause by the Cinerama process. The colour has been tweaked to a standard as good probably as the original print. The sound also has been worked over with both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby HD 7.1. One disc also has a thing called, 'Smilebox' which simulates the Cinerama effect. It works!!!
The film features three interlinked narratives and directed by three of Hollywood's greatest directors including John Ford. You'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll be uplifted in this moving piece of cinema history. It deserves to be up there along with Gone With the Wind and Citizen Kane.
As others have mentioned, the quality of the original single-disc NTSC release left quite a bit to be desired but WHV's Blu-ray release is a distinct improvement on the DVD.Read more ›
