While this is a handsome presentation of the Director's Cut on blu-ray, a 35 page spread including photos, filmography lists for Abraham, Hulce and Berridge, a page each for producer, writer and director, as well as an excellent group of selections from the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-fields on an 8 track CD featuring Mozart's music, it does NOT include the original theatrical version of the film, only the theatrical TRAILER!!\n\nThose looking for the Original version of this film need look elsewhere.
Case was scratched with what looks like a box knife, irritating because I like my purchases in great condition, something I do with my entire DVD collection. But not worth getting disgruntled about. Another order I picked up the same day and a blade was taken to the top instead in the face of the DVD, it was scratched but on the top and not as noticeable(that one was Fullmetal Alchemist: Conqueror of Shamballa), but irritating. They need to be more careful when unpacking orders. I doubt whomever reads this really cares about my purchase, and the obvious neglect shown to my items in the warehouse,. MacGruber was broken off the hinges(another movie I ordered through you guys). I love Site-to-Store, but this needs to get better.
I tried two different DVD players and this DVD would not play - may have been warped in shipment ??\nWhen I took it back to the store (to save the cost of shipping it back to Walmart online) I was told by their customer service lady that since it had been opened, they could not give me my money back (even though I had the receipt for it). She did offer to replace it with another DVD, but since they did not stock this particular movie, I was not interested. So I am either stuck with a DVD that will not play or have to pay shipping back to Walmart online, which is not worth it since the DVD only cost $5 and the cost to ship it back will probably be more than that.
I was a little skeptical of this movie because I watched Streets of Laredo first and didn't care for it. However, a few minutes into the movie it looked like it might actually live up to the quality of the Lonesome Dove Series.
The actors that played Call and McCrae were both excellent. They captured the spirit of their characters very well.
