The Anthony Mann – James Stewart crowd-pleaser now comes to Region A Blu-ray. With its bright Technicolor hues, it’s the wagon train movie fans remember first after Red River.Stewart is a good guy with a dark background who tries to atone by helping some settlers. The thorn in his side is an unrepentant former outlaw played by Arthur Kennedy in high style — togther they rever to their old ways and practically burn down the new town of Portland, Oregon (on the Universal back lot). Also shining bright is everyone’s favorite Universal contract player, Julie (Julia) Adams, who outclasses even the snowy peaks of Mt. Hood. On Blu-ray from KL Studio Classics.
