Description
A Classic Movie Adventure - Breathtakingly Reborn via Pioneering Technology - in a Stunning New Edition Never Before Possible.

With courage, sinew and conflict: that's how the west was won. With three directors, five interlocked stories, some of movie history's most legendary action scenes and a constellation of acting talent: that's how How the West Was Won was filmed. Henry Fonda, Gregory Peck, Debbie Reynolds, James Stewart and John Wayne are among the big names in this big saga following a family's move West through generations - marked by the spectacles of a heart-pounding raging river tide, a thunderous buffalo stampede and a bracing runaway train shootout. Via technological advances, this panoramic winner of three Academy Awards can now be seen with a resplendent, restored clarity eliminating its original "three-panel join lines" and in roof-raising Dolby 5.1 audio. Westward ho!
