Next February, Warner Home Entertainment will release Fort Apache on Blu-ray. Directed by John Ford (The Searchers), this first entry in Ford's unofficial "Cavalry Trilogy" stars John Wayne (Rio Bravo) and Henry Fonda (Once Upon a Time in the West) as two cavalry officers at odds with one another over what they each perceive to be proper treatment of the Apache tribe.
Warner has not yet announced the technical specifications for the Blu-ray, though the disc does contain the following bonus features:
Day 1 and I hope more John Ford classics are released including Drums Along the Mohawk, Grapes of Wrath, How Green Was My Valley, They Were Expendable, My Darling Clementine, 3 Godfathers and She Wore A Yellow Ribbon!
Glad to see more John Wayne and John Ford movies. As has been indicated already, I'd really like to see more of these classics get top of the line BD treatment. I will second the vote of "rkolinski" for They Were Expendable and She Wore A Yellow Ribbon. It seems with each viewing of They Were Expendable that this movie climbs higher and higher up my all time favorite movie list. As a Disabled Veteran, I am more able to relate to the core themes and messages explored by They Were Expendable with each passing year as I'm given time to reflect on some of that movie's seemingly timeless theme and message.
Hell yeah. One of my least fav Ford westerns, but I'm still glad to see release dates attached to his work. rkolinski called it with the movies that I'd love to have in HD. The man made over 100 movies - I'd buy them all if they were available.
