Excellent Paramount Western June 8 2012
By B. Cathey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Edmond O'Brien made several fine Westerns for Paramount Pictures prior to his epochal role in THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE. DENVER & RIO GRANDE may be his best outing until that 1962 classic. Starring O'Brien and Sterling Hayden, DENVER & RIO GRANDE is a classic railroad film, one of the best ever made, with a spectacular crash that even today is considered amazing. The film is beautifully shot in Technicolor, with an excellent cast, solid plot and action, and great production values. Although Paramount Pictures tended to make fewer Westerns than other studios in the 1950s, the ones it did make---with Charlton Heston, Alan Ladd, John Payne, and O'Brien---were always superior, no expense spared. DENVER & RIO GRANDE is very entertaining and repays re-watching.

Olive Films has been licensing and releasing a number of Paramount Westerns, including SILVER CITY (with O'Brien), PONY EXPRESS (with Heston), THE JAYHAWKERS (with Jeff Chandler and Fess Parker), RUN FOR COVER (Jimmy Cagney' best of his three Westerns), THE NIGHT OF THE GRIZZLY (with Fess Parker) and THE HANGMAN (with Robert Taylor). Let's hope that this very fine series of releases will continue with such excellent Westerns as WARPATH (also with O'Brien) and FLAMING FEATHER (with Sterling Hayden), both superior entertainment and in need of the professional release that Olive Films can give them.

Highly recommended.

Denver and Rio Grande Sept. 5 2012
By Rance A. Nethken - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Being from Colorado originally, the D&RGW's trackage passed near my home in Fraser, Colorado. The history of that railroad is well documented and the DVD follows most accurately the difficulties portrayed in the movie. It was sure great to see it on DVD since I do have it in VHS format. Truly a real gem of a movie!!!

Rousing western July 2 2013
By Keoma - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I used to watch this on TBS back when they showed classic movies before TCM. These are the type of movies I have been waiting for on blu-ray and it doesn't disappoint comparing to what it used to look like on broadcast television. I won't give any extended review except to just say that it was worth the price for a good old-fashioned oater and I look forward to purchasing many more for my library. The scenery was gorgeous and there was plenty of action all of which was deftly handled by director Byron Haskin.

Trains great, plot stupid. July 26 2012
By James D. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
As a Narrow gauge fan I love the film. Plot leaves a lot to be desired, Durango to Silverton trains shots wonderful.

Classic movie with real trains June 11 2014
By Terry Dilts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The movie uses real DRGW C-16 engines and crashes two of them headlong. It is worth the viewing just to see these historical pieces. The story is not bad either.
