In his review of a new German Bluray of Henry King’s The Bravados, DVD Beaver’s Gary W. Tooze (a) notes the presence of “darker visuals” than those on the 2005 DVD, and (b) allows that the Bluray may have “even more CinemaScope mumps” than the previous disc.

Why the hell would any Bluray distributor issue a film with a bad case of the mumps? Particularly after the de-mumpifying (or de-mumpification) of The Innocents, 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea and The Big Country. I realize there are probably fewer than 100 people on the planet right now who care about the persistence of the CinemaScope mumps, but I’m one of them, dammit.
