| Hanging Tree DVD
WB claims the negative is in very sorry shape, no word on whether they will spring for a restoration. Odd thing is, though, that WB has a DVD out in Europe, region 2. Perhaps WB has contempt for Europe and has released a shoddy print.

But I agree about this film. One of the best westerns ever made. The auteuristas don't care for it -- Delmer Daves is not among their favs -- so that may be one reason there isn't much push for a DVD.

Brilliant cinematography, Max Steiner's score is one of his finest, tight script, direction is flawless (pax to the auteur theory claque) and the acting -- from Cooper and Schell and Maldin all the way down to the smallest part -- is pitch-perfect.

Alas ...
