Format: DVD
When I found the Legends of the West 8 Movie Collection on DVD it looked like I had found a gem. While none of the titles in the collection will be confused with The Searchers or The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, there are some decent (if somewhat obscure) movies in the set. From low budget American made Westerns from the 70's to Spaghetti Westerns this set has some decent titles (and a couple lesser titles as well).

So I picked up the set hoping that BCI/Brentwood made sure that the quality of the prints and encoding/mastering was at least passable. After BCI's job on legitimately licensed titles over the last 5 years I thought that was at least a strong possibility.

Unfortunately, as it turns out, this set is barely watchable at all. Washed out color and contrast on most titles is the first problem. Pronounced compression artifacting is another major problem, along with slightly muffled sound. Putting the 8 movies on 2 double sided discs is part of the problem.

Title by title this is the scorecard...

Johnny Yuma - Non Anamorphic widescreen, non-progressive (showing combing or interlacing), washed out color and contrast, serious compression artifacting, somewhat muffled sound.

Joshua - Non Anamorphic/Non-Progressive widescreen, color and contrast are marginally better than Johnny Yuma, but again there is significant compression artifcacting and muffled sound.

The Gatling Gun - Full Screen/Pan & Scan, non-progressive, washed out color and contrast, serious compression artifacts, muffled sound.

The Legend of Alfred Packer - Full Screen/Pan & Scan, non-progressive, strong compression artifacts, muffled sound.

Got this for the Alfred Packer movie, because it's the only dvd release available. Image quality was better than expected (Still a bit dark at times) and the audio was a bit echoey. Main problem is that in the middle of the movie whatever VHS master they transfered this from messes up big time and the picture gets warped for a few seconds. haven't watched the other films in the set, but worth getting for the Alfred Packer film, if you liked movies like "The Donner Party" and "Ravenous."
