I had the DVD of this film and it was no better than watching a VHS, poor picture quality. But the Blue-ray release was obviously redigitized from a master with a good encoder. It was just like seeing it in the theatre again. Great picture, even on a 60\" plasma TV.
I don't necessarily like westerns, but this is an exception to the rule. It's good, real good! We can't believe it was made in 1969. It looks like a movie made recently. You can't go wrong with this action movie.
