      Great photos.
      Comancheros was broadcast in widescreen last night on the retroplex channel, right after Angel and the Badman, so I lost about four hours sleep.
      This movie is sooooo much better than anything churned out today. It looks effortless and is the kind of film I used to take for granted back then.
      The photography, music, script and actors are world class. Of course, most of the cast and crew had worked on The Alamo. I think I even recognized one of the longhorns (a brown one) from Alamo.
      The only quibble I have is about the dates in the movie and the repeating weapons and Joan O'Brien's screen husband wasn't killed by a Mexican cannon shot at San Jacinto. I don't think Santa Anna's army even fired a cannon in that "fracas".

      We deal in lead, friend.

      The only thing bad about it is: it's on AMC. They used to be commercial free - meaning they showed movies without interruption. Now they tend to chop them up without a 2nd thought.

      I will say, after watching The Commencheros there are two things: first, they didn't really do a bad job with it as far as editing goes, and secondly - did anyone else notice a very young Dennis Cole in the dance sequence on the riverboat scence near the start?

      I've seen this movie nearly 15 times, and I only noticed him THIS time!!!

      Wow, great images, Lasbugas! Thanks!

      Looks like Fox is pulling out all the stops for their Comancheros blu-ray release on May 17:


      The Comancheros will include audio commentary (by Stuart Whitman, Nehemiah Persoff, Michael Ansara and Patrick Wayne), 2 featurettes (The Comancheros and the Battle for the American Southwest and The Duke at Fox: A Two-Part Documentary), a vintage Comancheros comic book gallery, A Conversation with Stuart Whitman (Audio Only), Fox Movietonews: Claude King and Tillman Franks Receive Award for The Comancheros, theatrical trailers and 24-page book packaging.

      Here is a small version of the package art. Hope I can find a bigger version soon.
