We're getting of the only Fox Grandeur titles (also Wayne's first starring role) on blu-ray--cool.

You can actually see HD clips of the 70mm widescreen version of "Big Trail" in part one of the "Duke at Fox" documentary on "The Comancheros" blu-ray. The snippets shown look, surprisingly, good.

Wonder if they'll include the 1.37:1 35mm version that was shot along side?

I don't even have "The Barbarian and the Geisha" on DVD, sweet! Anything from the Duke on bluray is a great day!

Ranking as one of the worst big-budget movies ever made, especially in the film canons of both Huston and Wayne. Can't wait to rewatch it!

'The Big Trail' is actually a good western, however, and definitely worth owning.

I'm excited by this!

I have the remastered DVD of The Big Trail that was recently done, but look forward to this on Blu.

But, what really excites me is The Barbarian and The Geisha, which has only been available as a sketchy import DVD or VHS. Not one of my favorite films, but definitely a rare film that has never been widely available.

I'd like to see some of the rarer films come to Blu-Ray along with a popular film. Maybe Circus World (another decent rare film) will finally get remastered and released?

I'd love to see The Quiet Man and The Alamo on Blu.
