I’ve been wanting The Long Gray Line on blu-Ray for a long, long time. It’s probably my favorite John Ford film, and I think it’s one of the most neglected films of any major filmmaker. I wish it was getting a stand-alone release, though.

My thoughts exactly. I'll be getting this for that film alone.

That’s the one I recall liking too, but my memory is foggy enough on the rest to be skeptical about their lack of memorable qualities - save for the infamous final lines of The Last Hurrah, which always make me grin despite not remembering liking the film all that much

Im not a John Ford fan, but I'd love to get The Last Hurrah, maybe someone can buy the box & unload individual titles on ebay. I might have a tough time waiting for this to go out of print for titles to get individually released, seems like I've been waiting forever for Strait-Jacket to be unboxed. However if it means not having to triple dip for a Criterion (w/ better extras & 4k), maybe I can hold out.

...and I have it (which is why a Criterion would be the third time purchasing), but would love a better edition. But now Im thinking I might be confusing it with the other political comedy on a TT blu-ray that I love & wished there was a better edition of, Born Yesterday. Can't remember now which one I thought could have been significantly improved.

And it looks like it was sourced from a recent 2K OCN-based restoration.

I basically want this for Last Hurrah & Long Gray Line.

Recall being disappointed back in 2014 when Sony was releasing these films, with Two Rode Together, on DVD only.

Now I’ve got a great edition of 2RT and will definitely grab the Inficator for the others.

Beautiful cover & as good a time as any to revisit Ford with Eureka’s new presentation of Rio Grande scheduled.

So it's an improvement over the TT? I've been waiting for a comparison before double dipping.
