Posts from Lt. Brannigan in thread „The Big Trail (1930)“

    I am thrilled that the Special Big Trail edition is coming to DVD, I still find it hard to believe that it was almost 80 years ago that it hit theaters.
    I would like to add that this fall, Warner's is releasing a special edition of How The West Was Won.
    I wish that Lionsgate would get off its royal rumpus and release those other republic films that Duke made in 30's and 40's. And while I am wishing for stuff, I wish for his 6 Universal films from the 30's as well, and a pony to boot.

    Okay so here I am with news on the special features which I found via

    But is listed in a review on Amazon as well

    The Big Trail (Fox Grandeur Special Edition) DVD will feature the following bonus materials:

    • Commentary with film historian/author Richard Schickel on the 70mm widescreen presentation
    • The Creation of John Wayne
    • Raoul Walsh: A Man in His Time
    • The Big Vision: The Grandeur Process
    • The Making of The Big Trail
    • Trailers
    • Galleries:
    • Publicity
    • Original Posters
    • Pressbook Gallery

    And again, I do realize this is old news, but I am posting it for posterity .
