Story Synopsis:
Based on a story in the Saturday Evening Post, The Man From Laramie stars James Stewart as a vengeful man obsessed with hunting down the man responsible for his brother

DVD Picture:
Viewed through the component video output, the anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD will surely satisfy viewers with depth and definition on the sets, despite a dated quality. Images are sharp and detailed with pleasing contrast and shadow delineation. Colors are generally balanced with appropriately western qualities. Blacks are deep and solid. Film grain is revealed throughout, but otherwise the picture has a solid appearance. Minor edge enhancement and artifacts are apparent, but this 45-year-old film should not disappoint fans of western classics.
