I feel confident saying it's the best incest western ever made.

The KL Studio Classics Blu-ray of Vera Cruz is a brand new 2K master. The picture is very steady. I compared it to the old 2011 MGM Blu-ray for color, contrast, grain and framing. Both have pleasing color and both are sometimes rather grainy. The new 2021 disc has harsher contrast. Dark areas have less detail and some scenes look a tad softer. But random bits of dirt here and there are now gone ? the image is much cleaner.

Kino?s new scan presumably uses newer technology and better coloring software. But it appears that the same printing elements were scanned, as some of the same audiovisual flaws appear. A real improvement would need to start in the film vault and require the making of new duping film elements for the scanner.

On the other hand:

Kino have transferred Robert Aldrich's Vera Cruz to Blu-ray. It is cited as being from a "Brand New 2K Master". While it has a slightly superior bitrate, that is not the issue here - the MGM is from a significantly weaker source. The 10-year old transfer is pale, green and cropped on the left and bottom edges as compared to the new Kino 1080P. This is one of the largest discrepancies in Blu-ray visuals from a major studio to a boutique label that I can recall seeing. The Technicolor is very vibrant now and the film has very thick textures throughout. A highly dramatic and impacting upgrade thanks to Kino.
