The Searchers

 (1956)

The Searchers Blu-ray delivers stunningly beautiful video and great audio in this must-own Blu-ray release

Working together for the 12th time, John Wayne and director John Ford forged The Searchers into a landmark Western offering an indelible image of the frontier and the men and women who challenged it. Wayne plays an ex-Confederate soldier seeking his niece, captured by Comanches who massacred his family. He won't surrender to hunger, thirst, the elements or loneliness. And in his five-year search, he encounters something unexpected: his own humanity.

Filmed in VistaVsion

The Searchers Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Warner Brothers has recently remastered The Searchers, and the result is extraordinary. This print looks absolutely beautiful and pristine. The film is presented in luscious, vibrant technicolor in 1080p high definition and in its original 1.85:1 aspect ratio. I really love the look of technicolor. There is nary a speck of dirt on this print. Black levels are good, flesh tones looks great, and detail is high. Watching The Searchers on Blu-ray was a marvel and a revelation. I simply cannot wait to see more classic films on Blu-ray. If they look as good as The Searchers, we are going to be in for some mighty fine treats in the coming years. A long distance shot with snow on the ground and buffalo in the background is one of the most lifelike I have ever seen. A few other long distance shots, sometimes the type of shots that look the worst on home video, look as natural and lifelike as anything I have ever seen on a television set, and this is coming from a 50 year old movie. Who would have thought combining a 50 year old film with modern entertainment mediums could result in an image as stunningly beautiful as this one? I'm simply astonished at just how wonderful The Searchers looks on Blu-ray.


The Searchers Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Warner Brothers presents The Searchers with a Dolby Digital Mono audio track running at 48KHz, 192 kbps. Ah, good old mono. It's really refreshing now and then. I'm thrilled they left something as good as this track as-is and didn't try and remix it to something that would have sounded unnatural. Music, dialogue, and gun shots all sound wonderful. Of course, there is nothing coming from any speaker but the center channel, and that's great, for this title. As an older film, this is what was originally heard, and as a major proponent of leaving things as they are and originally were, I loved the way The Searchers sounded. I cannot fault a track for faithfully reproducing its original source, and the track on The Searchers does this admirably.
