One of the most important films in cinema history - a must-see!. I love Westerns and a good story and never tire of seeing this gem. Please note: this print is hand-tinted in some places.
A marvelous film revealing the development of visual narrative; audiences at the time must have been enthralled. And the splashes of color were a treat as well. I have long wanted to view this film and was delighted.
