BLU-ray JOHN WAYNE LONESTAR FILMS.,
This review is from: John Wayne Collection [Blu-ray] [US Import] (Blu-ray)
Having read all the negative comments,I thought the hell with it ,I will buy the John Wayne Blu-ray Collection.
Apart from Mclintock which is pan & scan crap,Bad Quality
The old 1930's Westerns are reasonable quality.
No where near top notch,but better than some of the public domain DVD's.
THE DAWN RIDER
THE TRAIL BEYOND
THE STAR PACKER
HURRICANE EXPRESS. Feature Version of the old Mascot Serial.Quite nice quality too.
The Westerns are LoneStar Productions ,which no longer exist.So I for one am grateful
to the Distributors for releasing these on Blu-ray.
All in all for the price a good buy.
Its doubtful any film prints have survived,maybe 16mm ones,
These transfers were done in the early 90's
I am watching them on a 64inch Samsung Plasma TV,and they look ok.Nowhere near perfect but OK.
Though OLIVE films have released 4 with another 3 on the way of some of his 40's films ,which are Brilliant Quality.
and much better films than the LoneStar ones.
