Coming to DVD: Stagecoach (1939)

A long-awaited two-disc Criterion edition of John Ford's STAGECOACH arrives on May 25, 2010.

STAGECOACH has been released on DVD previously, most notably in a 2006 two-disc edition with a commentary by Ford biographer Scott Eyman. That DVD set also included the AMERICAN MASTERS documentary JOHN FORD/JOHN WAYNE (2006).

The STAGECOACH print still needed some work, and this newly restored Criterion edition is expected to be the finest copy of the film released to date.

All-new extras will include a commentary by Western movie historian Jim Kitses, a 1917 silent Ford film, new interviews, and a 1949 radio adaptation.

This impressive set sounds like a must-buy for Ford and Wayne fans.
