When I see a release like The Jayhawkers, a more or less obscure (at least to most of today's audience) 1950's western, it gives me hope that some of those great westerns from that period, that you would not expect to see on Blu, will actually get a shot on the format. The likes of Gunfight at the OK Corral (Burt Lancaster/Kirk Douglas), Last Train from Gun Hill (also Douglas), and Warlock (Richard Widmark, Henry Fonda, Anthony Quinn) are three that come to mind. These films were made during the first decade of wide screen and they, for the most part, were shot and processed beautifully taking advantage of the then new wide screen format. Another film from that era, a sort of western, at least in approach, was Bad Day at Black Rock. Beautifully done. Would love to see that one on Blu. To this day, I consider The Searchers, from that period and an early release on Blu, still one of the best looking Blu's out there.
