      Roughrider, my copies haven't arrived yet so I can't answer your question. However, I have e-mailed the DVDBeaver e-mail list about the regions and I expect there will be an answer soon.

      After seeing the stills are reading the reviews I cannot wait for these titles to get here! It will be like watching them for the first time as my dvd copies are so poor.

      I have finished watching the four Three Mesquiteer films on blu-ray and I have to say, these films look gorgeous. I bet they haven't looked this good since their original release. I remember one shot where leading lady Ruth Rogers is sitting in a wagon, and you can see, very clearly, ONE STRAND of blonde hair that has come loose from her hairdo and is waving in the breeze and shining in the sun.

      The Three Mesquiteers' time travel abilities are certainly impressive! :) :) :) :)

      Hey Paula,

      I know, I know, I know!!!

      My copy of Night Riders arrived today, in the UK, and I'm watching it now.

      The picture is STUNNING! I cannot believe what Olive have achieved here. I've owned these for many years on CD-R and the quality was appalling, so much so I wasn't holding out much for these; boy was I wrong!

      The other titles cannot get here soon enough! If all the Republic titles slated for release by olive films on blu ray are this good I'm going to be a very poor but happy man.

      Not sure if I mentioned that Night Riders looks simply STUNNING!!:wink_smile:

      DVDs and blu rays are most often region coded, meaning you can only play them on machines in the regions they were released. This should get you up to speed. P

      Region A Blu-ray - North America, South America, East Asia except for China

      Region B Blu-ray - Europe and Africa

      Region C Blu-ray - China, Russia and other countries

      Red River Range finally arrived today.

      As fantastic as The Night Riders on Blu Ray.
      I have fallen in love with these anew. They are fantastic innocent little stories with some amazing horsemanship and Duke starting to really find himself. They are a joy to watch.




      hi dooley wouuld red river range be region free

      Pursued on Olive Films. Directed by Raoul Walsh, starring Robert Mitchum, Dean Jagger, Alan Hale and a small part for Harry Carey Jr.
      Fantastic, unconventional Western, one of the best I've seen recently.
      Olive Films remastering is as good as ever. Def worth checking out if you haven't seen it, IMHO!
