    Confusing review by Andrea LeVasseur

    I saw the original movie in CINERAMA (if anyone remembers that type of presentation then you may remember it as I do as being awesome). Lilith (Debbie Reynolds) heads west to claim a gold mine left to her by her uncle, Gregory Peck goes along to try to cheat her out of some of the money from the gold mine, finds out there is no money and leaves her. They get together later for other reasons.<BR/>George Peppard does kill a particular Confederate but the man is not his friend, he barely knows the man and it's not clear at first he is a Confederate. Richard Widmark is not George Peppards boss and the reason George Peppard leaves has to do with a matter of honor not because of the destruction of the railroad camp which was a great scene. As for the final segment it too had another great CINERAMA scene and there's history between George Peppard and the leader of the outlaw gang played by Eli Wallach. Think of "Magnificent Seven" and "The Good,The Bad and The Ugly" when it comes to Mr Wallachs character. <BR/>As for the reviewer who thinks this movie doesn't address the indians side this movie was made in 1962 when cowboys were good and there was rarely an indian side to anything except for maybe a movie like Broken Arrow.

    BENNIE QUINCY SHAFT SAYS … WOW!

    Much has been written about the excellence of, “How the West Was Won.” I concur. The visuals and the sound are outstanding. There are no complicated plots here and no complicated storyline, but, again, the visuals and the sound are outstanding.

    We did notice one problem with the audio, however. While the Dolby Digital 5.1 (the BD’s default) played perfectly, the superior Dolby Tru HD 5.1 was about one-quarter second ahead of the picture, making it impossible to use that soundtrack.

    Our OPPO 105 BD player could be the culprit, seeing as how we have had this problem with two DTS HD Master soundtracks in the past. However, since the player has been “spot-on” with other DTS HD Master soundtracks and all the LPCM soundtracks, I believe this to be yet another poorly authored Blu-ray Disc.

    We really don’t know the answer.

    Look at hte other side

    This movie shows in colorful ways the 'White' side of the West. <BR/>It does in no way mention the terrible price the Native Americans paid for this 'Winning of the West' Anybody who watches tthis movie should also watch the decumentary 'How the West was lost' that shows the suffering of the Native Americans caused by the greed of the American Government, settlers and the military ( a PBS ducumentary).

    Authentic

    Some minor errors, but they do not detract from the truth of this film. If you want to know the facts, watch this film. Note the emphasis on the American Dream and Manifest Destiny

    Perhaps one of the best adaptions of L'Amour

    An adaption of a Louis L'Amour novel of the same title, this is the best of many. The music will really haunt you, and the feeling of possibilities that was the West comes through in the film. A great character study of people that made the trek, with few "heros" thrown in to set the time period. This is a great story of how people make history instead of events, and how people make events into history. I heartily recomment this film, and the book. Both will keep you up to watch and read, and leave you to thinking long after of all the ones that we never read of, but are descended from, no matter race, creed, color, or religion.
