Lots of activity on the DVD horizon these days. Man From Del Rio (1956) is coming from the MGM Limited Edition Collection, released through 20th Century Fox’s on-demand program. I’d already covered the announcement of Joel McCrea in the excellent Fort Massacre (1958), part of the same collection. Both titles are available this month.
Columbia’s similar program has a few 50s Westerns on the way, too. Laramie Mountains and The Kid From Broken Gun are both Durango Kid pictures from 1952 starring Charles Starrett. (Broken Gun marked the end of the series.) Also coming is Dana Andrews and Donna Reed in Three Hours To Kill (1954), written by Roy Huggins, who’d written and directed Hangman’s Knot back in 1952.
Add these to the Warner Archive titles from this week, and things are certainly looking up.
