She Wore a Yellow Ribbon....Great Color !!

In all the years I've been watching SHE WORE A YELLOW RIBBON, since my first viewing in a theater in 1949, today's version has the best color that I can ever remember seeing.

 

This film must have been restored and dubbed to a high quality HD electronic medium of some sort.

 

I don't see any dust, scratches, or flaws of any kind, and the sharpness is remarkable.

 

This film won an Oscar for Best Cinematography, Color, Winton C. Hoch.

 

I've been to Monument Valley, and this is the way it really looks, especially when the mesas turn from brown to red near sunset.

 

Thanks TCM. :P

 

Capt. Nathan Cutting Brittles' stone cabin is still there.

I just found this.... There is apparently a company that arranges commercial horse rides through the valley. The Monument Park is owned by the Navajo Indians now. Very nice people.

Just a few years ago I purchased *Fort Apache* and *She Wore a Yellow Ribbon* dvds (not blue ray) and was very pleased with the picture quality. Someone has been doing a good job restoring/preserving these films. These films are big favorites of mine, SWaYR is my favorite "Duke" film. Fonda was excellent in FA, almost as good as "Mister Roberts" ;)
