High Definition Matters
The Digital Bits - Barrie Maxwell's High Definition Matters

Welcome to the 100th Classic Coming Attractions column. This time out, I'm featuring a profile of Roy Rogers, 2011 being the 100th anniversary of his birth. A number of brief reviews of different companies' holdings of his films available on DVD are included (particularly 13 titles available from VCI and 20 titles from Alpha) as is a complete filmography. In keeping with this western theme, I also have reviews of a number of recent DVD and Blu-ray western releases: The Comancheros (BD from Fox); Wild West Collection: Rio Conchos/Take a Hard Ride (DVD from Shout! Factory); The Phantom Empire and The Gene Autry Show: The Complete First Season (both DVD from Timeless Media Group); Vera Cruz (BD from MGM); and Big Jake, Rio Lobo, and A Man Called Horse (all BD from Paramount).
