Coming to DVD: Rawhide (1951)

The excellent Western RAWHIDE, reviewed here one year ago, is coming to DVD on May 13, 2008.

RAWHIDE stars Tyrone Power, Susan Hayward, and Huge Marlowe. Like dozens of Westerns, it was filmed on location in Lone Pine, California. According to the DVD Times, RAWHIDE extras include a featurette titled "Shot It In Lone Pine!" as well as a piece on Susan Hayward.

RAWHIDE will be part of a three-film Fox Western Classics set, along with GARDEN OF EVIL and THE GUNFIGHTER. GARDEN OF EVIL stars Gary Cooper, Richard Widmark, Susan Hayward, and Huge Marlowe, while THE GUNFIGHTER stars Gregory Peck, Jean Parker, and Karl Malden.

GARDEN OF EVIL has the added bonus of a commentary track; unfortunately, it appears RAWHIDE and THE GUNFIGHTER do not have commentaries. GARDEN OF EVIL also has a featurette on director Henry Hathaway and a "making of" documentary, while GUNFIGHTER's extras seem to be fairly minimal. Overall, it looks like another terrific set from Fox.
