I believe this was an excellent copy to HD as picture, sound, color were great. I have purchased other HD copies which turned out to be poor quality. This isn't the case with Vera Cruz. The movie in it's self is wonderful with many well known names to only make the movie that much better. Burt Lancaster was again at his very best in this role. Gary Cooper played such a perfect role you couldn't ask for better! This is one you have to own as the 50's westerns are still the king in my boat and this movie meets all the expectations of a great western!!! Get it!!!
