John Ford western Two Rode Together on dual format in March
17 January 2017
Eureka Entertainment have announced the release of Two Rode Together, John Ford’s story of Love and War in the Wild Wild West, starring James Stewart, Shirley Jones and Richard Widmark, as part of the Masters of Cinema Series in a special Dual Format edition on 13 March 2017 at the RRP of £17.99.
The first collaboration between James Stewart and director John Ford produced this thrilling and darkly complex Western that easily ranks among Ford’s best work, yet remains one of his most overlooked.
Stewart plays gloriously against type as Marshal Guthrie McCabe, a cynical and amoral U.S. Marshal assigned to trade guns with the fearsome Comanche in exchange for hostages, with the promise of a large reward if he is successful. McCabe and old friend Lieutenant Jim Gary (Richard Widmark – Pickup on South Street, Kiss of Death) set out to track down the Comanche and their captives, with tragic consequences for all involved.
With a screenplay by Frank Nugent (The Searchers) and cinematography by Charles Lawton Jr. (The Lady from Shanghai, 3:10 to Yuma), Two Rode Together was one of the first Westerns to recognize the dignity and value of the Native American way of life.
Dual format features:
Stunning High-Definition presentation
Uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray
Isolated music and effects track
Rebirth – a new and exclusive video essay on the film by Ford expert and scholar Tag Gallagher
A booklet featuring a new essay from critic and author Richard Combs
