Boetticher/Scott Westerns Coming Soon to DVD!

You can read about this very exciting announcement and other upcoming goodies, including Noir box-sets, from Sony in two recent interviews.

This news is absolutely fantastic.
I was so disappointed, after watching "Seven Men From Now" and desperately wanting to follow up with more Budd Boetticher and Randolph Scott collaborations, to learn the films were unavailable.
Boetticher himself is such a fascinating character, what with his bullfighting obsession taking his mind off his career.

Yeah, the upcoming set definitely fills a huge void. I hope it will include all of their collaborations made under the Columbia banner. This set will also include the Bruce Ricker documentary, A MAN CAN DO THAT, which previously aired on TCM.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
