Buck and the Preacher Blu-ray – Criterion

Criterion usually have outstanding releases so I expect this one to be no different. In fact this new release is a “New digital restoration” and has “uncompressed monaural soundtrack”.

It’s great to see classic films like this being restored and released on to blu-ray.
