IMDb says it was shot at 1.85 : 1, and it's kind of hard to believe a 1970 film would NOT be in a widescreen format.

Barquero certainly sounds like the best release in that pack of Westerns, but maybe the other titles are interesting as well. Does anyone know anything about the others? The Glory Guys sounds kind of interesting: Ft. Apache/The Little Bighorn revisited, I guess, but with a Peckinpah script. I may have to get that one. But what about the others: Billy Two Hats? Bad Jim? Anybody know anything about either of those (the other 2 titles being offered already have Region 1 versions)?

Can't remember about the others, but of course I saw the Gable movie a 15 years ago. Not bad.

6\10. I wondered what the gang was waiting for crossing the river anyway, try some commando action far from where the ferry was, building a raft (but why do they have to coast the ferry when they decide to?). The music on the opening credits ain't bad.

Amazon might as well put the whole movie up as opposed to putting that.

More thoughts on Barquero

Anyway I watched the film again and noticed that there may have been a few cuts.

Mountian Phil first appearence may have been trimmed for all we see is him pulling a bowie knife out of a body, and nothing leading up to it.

Lee Van Cleef & Mariette Hartley's "lust in the dust" sequence must have been trimmed since this scene is not in the film in this version:



Another cut is right before the barge battle, you see Remy's gang building their rafts and it immediately cuts to the two Remy rafts oaring their way across the river towards the barqueros barge.

Then you cut again to the opposite side of the river and all the squatters are hunkered down in the ferry already and waiting. So there must have been a sequence where Travis figuers out what Remys has planned and gets all the squatters into the ferry.
