The Horse Soldiers, one of the many pairings of star John Wayne and director John Ford, comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.66:1. English and Spanish soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Mono. Spanish and French subtitles are accessible, and the English soundtrack is closed captioned. Supplemental materials include the original theatrical trailer. Fans of the Duke will certainly enjoy this disc, but there is little here to interest the average DVD consumer.
