  • I've had a chance to sit down and look at the 10-disc John Wayne Collection from Fox.

    The good news is that The Barbarian and the Geisha looks lovely and to my surprise has the original 4-track audio soundtrack. The extras are as follows: original theatrical trailer, 4 Fox Movietone newsreels and a photo gallery.

    Duke fans who have the other 9 titles should stay away of course. It's best to buy the combo pack (Blu-ray/DVD) from Walmart.


    Another useful update.


    Does anyone know if Walmart do international shipping as it sounds like a Blu Ray purchase?


    Regards,

  • I was in Walmart today and not only saw the Blu-ray edition of Barbarian And The Geisha, but also The Big Trail. Both were priced at $12.96 and were in a Blu-ray/ DVD combo pack, which makes it convenient for viewing anywhere.

  • Rio Grande on Blu-ray (and standard DVD) on August 7!

    In the John Ford (The Quiet Man) classic, John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara (First of five films together) are embroiled in an epic battle with the Apaches and each other. Wayne leads his Calvary troops to the Rio Grande to fight a warring tribe. His toughest battle lies ahead when his unorthodox plan to outwit the elusive Apaches leads to a possible court-martial. Locked in a bloody war, he must fight not only to save his family, but also to redeem his honor. This was the third and final of the John Wayne/John Ford Cavalry films, which started with Fort Apache and was followed by She Wore a Yellow Ribbon. The great supporting cast includes Ben Johnson, Harry Carey Jr., Victor McLaglen and Chill Wills.

    Thanks for the update Paula. That makes much more sense.
    Hopefully it'll be a good transfer.

  • That's very true!
    Where abouts did you get the information on rio grande as I've just been on the olive website and cannot find any mention of it!
    High noon is on there though?

    "Pour yourself some backbone and shut up!"

  • I know Olive hasn't posted the info to their website or Facebook page -- strange. Hopefully they'll get it up there soon. But Olive did send out press releases yesterday about Rio Grande and Johnny Guitar, and the information has been posted at all the DVD information websites -- Home Theater Forum, blu-ray.com, and classicflix.com just to name a few. Plus the two press releases were also forwarded to the DVD Beaver e-mail list.




  • This film is released on DVD/Blu-Ray. I've seen it at Wal-mart for $12.99. So I included it in my collection. Not a great movie, but it is Duke, so I now have it. I didn't have to buy the box set.

    Cheers :cool: Hondo

    Thanks for sharing Hondo,


    I've ordered The Big Trail also, had to pay through the nose as Walmart doesn't ship internationally. One of the downsides of being on the other side of the pond!
    Hondo is the release I'm really looking forward to.

    Agreed with that. Looking forward to the release of my namesake.

  • Can somebody exsplain to me what they mean by Combo? Does this mean there is a blue ray disc and a regular format disc inside? Or do you bottom line have to have a blue ray machine? ( i'm referring to the Barbarian and the Geisha DVD at Walmarts.)
    thanks.

  • I bought the new Pirates of the Caribbean DVD last fall and it came with 2 DVDs. A regular DVD and a Blue-Ray disc. This is the manufacturer's way of telling us that our DVD players are about to expire and we might need to invest in a Blue-Ray player. lol

    In reference to The Barbarian and the Geisha the combo is two discs, one blu-ray, the other disc is the DVD. As for the format, it really depends on what they include on the discs.

    I think it's really cool of them to have both. I have a sister in-law who loves movies and does not have or want a blu-ray player. And I can have that version to watch myself.

    Cheers :cool: Hondo

    Same here, Hondo. I have 2 Blu-ray players and 2 DVD players. So it comes in handy when there's both formats in one package. Or if one of my kids wants to borrow a movie that just came out, but they don't have Blu-ray, so they can still see it in the DVD format. And I try to always buy the combo pks just for that purpose.

    The combo releases are also great when you're on the move.
    I had She Wore a Yellow Ribbon and The Searchers on the ipad for the 11 hour flight from London to Vegas! It's much easier to rip from DVD than Blu Ray.


    I also had Rango on there. Has anyone else seen it and been amused at the John Ford and Sergio Leone nature of some of the shots; it's very clever and funny.


    Off topic but I was on a roll! ;)
