While the previously released DVD was bare bones, this DVD at least offers an audio commentary track by director Sam Peckinpah and authors Paul Seydor, Garner Simmons, and David Weddle, with moderator Nick Redman.
Steve McQueen is Junior Bonner, a bull rider on the rodeo circuit. He decides to visit his family in Prescott, Arizona while recovering from injuries he received when he was thrown by a big ole
Unfortunately, MGM opted against releasing Junior Bonner with a new anamorphic transfer...keeping the previously released non-anamorphic picture that looks a bit dated. Images are generally sharp and detailed, with mediocre contrast and shadow delineation. The picture is well lit and often is quite pleasing in appearance. Minor edge enhancement, artifacts and film grain are apparent. Aliasing problems are only occasional, for a picture that is generally pleasing. Some scenes are presented with a sepia-tone appearance.

Reason #36 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review because it’s simply the best A/V magazine available. No other magazine includes such a comprehensive discussion of developments and potential developments in the field, as well as a detailed analysis of systems and products available. Widescreen Review provides thorough and easy-to-follow “how to” sections in building and setting up home theatre and is the definitive authority on quality DVDs. No other magazine can beat all that. Kudos to Widescreen Review! I will never stop my subscription.
