An epic on the cusp of two eras. Dated, but well crafted. The "Miriam Collection" fills the box.

(D)irector Anthony Mann uses his stunning locations and choreographs his armies and crowds magnificently... corralling it into the frame like an old master...

A deluxe DVD package to match the grandeur of Mann's admirable epic.
