I first watched the film as part of a film studies course not long after it was first released under the title of "Never Give an Inch", which was the much quoted family motto. It was also the title I preferred and set the tone of the film. Although I knew at the time that it was not a great film, I had to admit to myself that it had made an impression, and that there were scenes from it that stuck in the memory. So when the opportunity came to buy the DVD I grabbed it. The story is set in the rugged and beautiful state of Oregon. The Stamper family headed by patriarch Henry, played by Henry Fonda, and helped by his two sons Hank played by Paul Newman, and Joe Ben played by Richard Jaekel, are independent loggers in the local community of Wakonda.Read more ›

Perhaps it was the specific disk I bought, but if this is a remastered video they didn't pay attention to audio copying, the sound was at times weak and/or distorted, so the "fiddling with the volume remote control" kicks in several times during two hours.
