There's all kinds of great new and archival releases hitting DVD and Blu-Ray right now, but I wanted to give special mention to Burt Kennedy's terrific 1971 western Hannie Caulder, which finally hits Region 1 DVD Tuesday. This wonderfully inventive film stars Raquel Welch and Robert Culp (both of whom are quite brilliant) as well Strother Martin, Jack Elam and Ernest Borgnine. The film has been a long-time personal favorite of mine and I am really happy to see it finally hitting disc after years of being out of print. Check it out if you haven't seen it before or give it another look if it has been awhile. The disc, sadly, has no extras but I have heard the transfer is sharp so I will be more than happy to finally ditch my old laserdisc copy.
