Great news found in a discussion thread at the Turner Classic Movies forum: one of my very favorite John Ford films, WAGON MASTER (1950), comes to DVD on September 15th.
The DVD will include a commentary by Peter Bogdanovich and star Harry Carey Jr.
This is a welcome release from Warner, as their retail releases of classic films have pretty much come to a halt since the announcement of the Warner Archive DVD-on-demand program a couple months ago. (More on that later...)
WAGON MASTER is a marvelous film in which Ford promoted his perennial stock company players Carey and Ben Johnson into leading roles as guides of a Mormon wagon train.
The movie also features Ward Bond, Joanne Dru, a wonderful score sung by the Sons of the Pioneers, and great Utah locations. It's "must viewing" for fans of classic films in general, and Westerns in particular.
