Monte Hellman, of Two Lane Blacktop fame, brings us Ride In The Whirlwind (along with his pal Jack Nicholson). A western of cult classic status and written by Nicholson, it concerns three cowhands (Mitchell, Nicholson, and Tom Filer) who are on their way to a job. They encounter a group of outlaws who are hiding out after robbing a stagecoach. When the sheriff comes to arrest the gang, the cowhands are assumed to be a part of the outlaw troupe and are hunted like wanted criminals. (Laurie Sevano)

Reason #34 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I was always told to seek the superlative, and where home entertainment is concerned, WSR makes sure that my reach always exceeds my grasp. Fortunately, in this case, it's a good thing. I can count on WSR to always go beyond what every other magazine in the industry can provide. It has inspired me to explore the concepts, both technical and subjective, to the extent that I even feel smarter about home entertainment technology. Hardware and software are both dealt with in an informative and engaging way, so the value of the magazine surpasses its modest price. WSR has been a great inspiration for my wishes and dreams. I wish I could afford the ultra wares I see covered in the magazine. Nevertheless, I am wiser because I have gained a sense of judgment through reading WSR. (I must admit to having a bit of common sense, though, since I have been using Monster Cable products for over 10 years!) I hope WSR will continue to ignite the interest in its audience as it has up to now.
