Screen legends Gary Cooper and Jean Arthur star in Cecil B. DeMille's sweeping classic. This stylish Western skillfully interweaves classic real-life Old West legends like Wild Bill Hickok (Cooper), Calamity Jane (Arthur), Buffalo Bill Cody, George Armstrong Custer and Abraham Lincoln into a stunning tale as vast as the wild frontier itself. Packed with thrilling action, powerful drama and spectacular set pieces, The Plainsman set the standard by which other western extravaganzas would be forever measured.

Top Customer Reviews
The movie itself is stylistically dated and will not suit the tastes of some modern viewers. However the movie provides a very interesting viewing experience for a student of Hollywood History. Personally, I enjoy movies such as this from that perspective. Thank You...
TRANSFER: Considering the vintage of the film, this is a moderately appealing transfer, with often clean whites and extremely solid blacks. There's a considerable amount of film grain in some scenes and an absence of it at other moments. All in all, the image quality is therefore somewhat inconsistent, but it is never all bad or all good - just a bit better than middle of the road. Age related artifacts are kept to a minimum and digital anomalies do not distract. The audio is mono but nicely balanced.
EXTRAS: Forget it. It's Universal!
BOTTOM LINE: As pseudo-history painted on celluloid, this western is compelling and fun. Just take its characters and story with a grain of salt - in some cases - a whole box seems more appropriate!
