Completely agree with previous posters - one of the most stunning uses of Technicolor during the forties. A must-own for that reason alone. I'm hoping that a DUEL IN THE SUN Blu-ray will be happening soon.
This will look stunning on Blu-ray! I just don't understand why they make these awful covers for these old films. They try to make the art work look very contemporary. Oh well, I second the motion for Duel in The Sun tho.
