The Undefeated

Overview

Andrew V. McLaglen's The Undefeated (1969), starring John Wayne, was released on laserdisc in letterboxed form in the early 1990's, in an edition that looked very good -- the 2003 Fox DVD isn't a huge jump up in quality, though it does cost about half as much as the laser ever did. It was photographed by William H. Clothier, who also shot Chisum (directed by McLaglen and starring Wayne) within the same year -- the two movies were released on DVD about a week apart in 2003, and look about the same; both are in ...

Overview

Andrew V. McLaglen's The Undefeated (1969), starring John Wayne, was released on laserdisc in letterboxed form in the early 1990's, in an edition that looked very good -- the 2003 Fox DVD isn't a huge jump up in quality, though it does cost about half as much as the laser ever did. It was photographed by William H. Clothier, who also shot Chisum (directed by McLaglen and starring Wayne) within the same year -- the two movies were released on DVD about a week apart in 2003, and look about the same; both are in Panavision and letterboxed to a 2.35-to-1 aspect ratio. The DVD looks about as this reviewer remembers The Undefeated from two theatrical screenings in 1969, though Chisum may have a slight edge on disc in the sharpness of its transfer. Fox has done reasonably well by The Undefeated, with 28 chapters covering its 119 minutes, which encompass enough plot twists to make more than one viewing a necessity. The original trailer appears in its English, Spanish, and Portuguese versions, and is accompanied by the trailers for North To Alaska and The Comancheros -- there are also optional French and Spanish audio tracks for the movie and English captions and Spanish subtitles as well, all accessible in a triple-layer menu that's easy to maneuver around. One does wish that Fox had gotten McLaglen to provide a commentary track here the way that Warner Home Video did with Chisum, but the whole package is still a good value as a mid-price DVD.
