The "Big Trail" in High Definition?

PostSat Dec 16, 2017 1:50 pm

Fox issued a "blu-ray of "The Big Trail" a few years back. My question is whether the widescreen version of the film is truly a high definition scan of the film? I remember that it was copied many years ago from a widescreen print, but does that mean it was in high definition?

The Blu-Ray of the widescreen version Fox released in 2012 (intially as a Walmart exclusive) is definitely high-def. I have a copy and have watched it. It's a 2-disc set (Blu-Ray + DVD) and also has the Academy ratio version in HD, but I haven't watched that.
