Here comes another Walmat exclusive Blu-ray — Raoul Walsh’s The Big Trail (1930), the picture that gave some guy named John Wayne his first part in a big picture. It was an early experiment in 70mm widescreen cinematography. The process was called Grandeur — and it is breathtaking at times.
All of which make it a perfect Blu-ray release.
Hitting your local Walmart that same day (May 8th) is another Wayne Blu-ray, John Houston’s The Barbarian And The Geisha (1957) — a picture I can’t make myself like, no matter how hard I try.
