Monte Hellman's The Shooting to Enter The Criterion Collection

Posted April 10, 2014 05:28 PM by Webmaster

Maverick director Monte Hellman (Two-Lane Blacktop) has revealed that The Criterion Collection is working on a Blu-ray release of his early western The Shooting (1966), starring Warren Oates, Millie Perkins, Jack Nicholson, Will Hutchins, and Brandon Carroll. A preliminary street date for this upcoming release has not yet been revealed.

Recently, director Hellman left the following comments on Facebook:

"Spent the day working on the color correction on the Criterion Blu-ray of THE SHOOTING. Working from a scan of the original negative. What a revelation! Saw it side by side with the IP. At least twice the information. It's not possible for any print to be as good as a blu ray made from a 4K transfer. A DCP would be even better.

I will tell you now, you've never seen this movie before. I've never seen this movie before. Warren in one scene has tears in his eyes which were never visible in any print, video cassette or DVD. I'm only sad that Greg Sandor isn't here to see it. It's the way it looked when he shot it."

Official synopsis: Willett Gashade is a former bounty hunter who decides to trade in his crime-fighting ways to tend to his family's mining business. He returns home to find his brother missing and ends up on an adventure through the Utah desert with a beautiful mystery woman and a ruthless gunfighter (Nicholson) who may or may not be responsible for his brother's disappearance and the murder of one of his old friends. The mystery builds to the film's enigmatic conclusion

Is this one better than Hellman's Ride in the Whirlwind? Cause that one was horrible.

Great news! Hopefully, more Hellman, on Criterion, will follow. Ride In the Whirlwind and Cockfighter are great!

I really want this as I love Two Lane Blacktop and Warren Oates. My blu-ray player isn't multiregion though.

My understanding from the Criterion forum is that the release will also include 'Ride In The Whirlwind' as a double bill. Great news!

@ John The Grudge:

If you can. Try and get a Region free player. So many great Movies available. Best move I ever did.

I have a hideously over-compressed copy of this on a cheapo public domain ten-pack, along with Ride In The Whirlwind. You bet I'm snapping this up.

@Bruce Morrison
It would be the logical thing to do, given that Ride in the Whirlwind was produced back to back with The Shooting, using mostly the same crew and cast. "Ride" could be sold as a regular western to the audiences, while The Shooting was more experimental, so Roger Corman approved The Shooting, provided they would shoot "Ride" for as cheap, taking advantage of previous expenses.
