This is an absolutely gorgeous Trucolor uncut version of Bells of Coronado. It is far superior to the 1990's VHS version released by Republic Home Video. Although I would not rate this movie as one of Roy's best, it is still a good one. The quality of this DVD makes it a must for collectors of Roy's films. Lionsgate/Fox is to be commended for the great job they did. Hopefully they will do more of Roy's Trucolor films on DVD (Republic Home Video had marketed 9 Trucolor titles on VHS).

I'm glad someone finally started releasing on dvd the few Roy Rogers films that were made in TruColor, in their original uncut form. Hats off to Lions Gate Home Entertainment! But please don't stop with this one. There are at least 10 more, out of the original twenty or so films that were originally made in TruColor, that there are color prints for. Some how the color prints for the rest were lost. This is really sad. However, I recently found out about one that has recently been released entitled SUNSET IN THE WEST, and although it says it is in B&W, it really is in color. I bought a vhs copy and was thrilled. I guess it was also released on dvd, but no dvd copys seem to be

available at present. Keep up the good work Lions Gate!

Color and Quality of this DVD is Excellent. Bells of Coronado

is my Grandkids favorite "Roy" movie. They want to watch this one over and over. It's more popular than Shrek at my house.

This film is somewhat impressive. The restoration process is first class. Production values of the original film were well above average. Another factor; it is in full length form. All Roy Roger's Trucolor films deserve this care. It is my understanding that possibility is remote because of the lack of care down through the years of these films. They were butchered down in some cases to as little as 51 minutes or so for their early TV showings,some were simply not preserved in their color form at all,ownership changed more often than that of the Chrysler Corporation and who knows what else. In other words finding all of the basic ingredients to work with is a challenge.

One might think that I was one of Roy's biggest fans. Not so. Back in the day Hopalong Cassidy, Gene Autry, Johnny Mack Brown, Ken Maynard etc.were much preferred over Roy. Nevertheless an appreciation has evolved over time. Roy's family values and clean cut image are certainly scarce in today's world. He also looked the part of a cowboy hero: slim/ trim and athletic looking no matter what age he became. That is not the case with the group above save William (Hopalong Cassidy) Boyd.I forgot to mention John Wayne. He too is in that group with the middle age spread. Another selling point of Roy Rogers is Dale Evans. She was able to gain the attention of any cowboy or cowboy fan. And of course there is Trigger, Pat Brady and most importantly Gabby Hayes.

If you want to feel young again this film is a good place to start that journey.

This is a very good release from Lions Gate of this Roy Rogers film. It looks great and is uncut with only minor imperfections. I'm very pleased to see a good quality uncut print of a Rogers film. There just aren't enough of them in decent shape.

Please note that this review is in regards to the Good Times Video DVD realease of "Bells of Coronado". Prior to this, I'd never seen a film shot using Republic's Trucolor process. And after, I'm not entirely sure I want to see another. I'm not sure what this "remaster" is in comparison to... but I don't find the picture to be "remastered" My complaints with this release aren't with the colorization process used, even though it's primitive looking when compared to Technicolor. My primary issue is the overall softness of the image. I'm not entirely sure if it's a result of Trucolor, but the picture is never what you'd call sharp, it always has a muddy "shot at twilight" or the old "day for night filtered" appearance, even when the scene is in bright daylight. The sound quality is quite good, the dialogue is nice and clear, however the lone song in the film gets a bit muffled sounding. Recapping, I'm not sure if my picture quality complaints are down to the Trucolor process, or a bad master, but I'd hesitate to agree that this film has been remastered.

As for the film itself, I've seen better Roy Rogers films, and I've seen worse. There was only one song in the film. I found the lack of song welcome, as I'm not a fan of that element of Roy Rogers/Dale Evans films, but some will find that a detractor. The story was rushed feeling, but one can only put that down to a slightly more than an hour run time, only so much story/character development can occur. It IS uncut! Which is a big plus for the viewer, we're not presented with lines and actions which have no context in light of cut scenes and dialogue!

Overall, I'm not pleased with this release, but I'm (sometimes overly) picky when it comes to picture and audio quality. Your experience may vary.
