Default 'The Man From Laramie' - High-Def Digest Review

Kevin has reviewed 'The Man From Laramie'. He says this is a thrilling revenge Western that may be one of the best in the genre. The image on this Blu-ray is very good, despite some inconsistencies, and the audio mix still delivers robust, action-oriented audio. This is recommended.

All we need are a few more Jimmy Stewart films on Blu Ray and movie collections everywhere would be a couple clicks more classy.

Glad to see TT went all out for this (or did they just pay for the studio to do 4K?)
Great PQ & AQ numbers, I'm in so long as it can still be purchased at release price or lower.

This one's going to need a 70 inch screen just to properly view, with it's 2.55:1 AR an all.

Twilight Time doesn't do any restorative/remastering work themselves. They simply use whatever master the studio supplies them with when a title is licensed. When a disc looks great, praise the studio.

The Man From Laramie was originally produced by Columbia Pictures, and is now owned by Sony. Sony is in the middle of massive and continually ongoing remaster/restoration initiative, spearheaded by Grover Crisp at ColorWorks, that's slowly archiving the vast film catalog in 4K.

Because Sony is almost entirely disinterested in putting films made before... now... on Blu-ray, many of these superb remasters are finding their way out via boutique labels.

Crisp oversaw the 4K remastering of On The Waterfront, licensed by Criterion, The Lady From Shanghai, which is on BD via TCM, and many of the Sony/Columbia titles released through Twilight Time, among countless other films. Even Image has had access to these 4K sources for a few of their respective Sony-licensed BDs.
