Despite its age, the 30-plus year-old El Dorado exhibits a picture that is quite pleasing with rich, vibrant colors that are nicely balanced. Images are generally sharp and detailed with nicely rendered contrast and shadow delineation (on sets, of course). Minor edge enhancement is noticed, and the picture sometimes has a pasty, plugged-up appearance, but otherwise John Wayne fans will be pleased with the image quality on this 1.78:1 anamorphically enhanced DVD.
The DVD soundtrack is Dolby
Reason #14 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Well, I spent most of my young years in the military (U.S. Ranger). My father really got me going in home theatre gear. There’s nothing like getting a good movie on DVD, turning on my HDTV, my Sony a/v receiver, and sitting down for good quality entertainment. I still enjoy the articles and reviews you give me. Please keep doing a great job. I look forward to the next issue.
