Format: DVD
The story goes that in 1950 Jimmy Stewart was looking around for something a little different for himself, something where he could play a character less folksy and warm. He sure did find it in this film, as well as all the other magnificent westerns he did with gritty, noir director, Anthony Mann (T-Men, Raw Deal, Railroaded, etc). This is the first of their collaborations.
When the film was first shown to test audiences, there were titters in the crowd when Jimmy Stewart's name appeared in the credits. "Mr. Smith" in a western? Shooting people? Please. By the end of the film, the tittering was all done and Stewart had established himself as a viable western hero (although in truth the magic of these Mann/Stewart westerns is that the characters Stewart plays are hardly "heroic." They are usually driven, neurotic men, nearly shifty-eyed, with a mean streak a mile wide - bitter men, and always very, very angry and eager to kill.
The basic set-up of this film is beautifully simple: Jimmy Stewart has a prize rifle stolen from him, a Winchester Model 1973 (which at the time the film takes place was state-of-the-art in the world of firearms), and he spends the rest of the movie hunting the man that stole it.
The story unfolds, however, as the movie rolls quickly along to something much more complex, culminating in one of the finest shootouts in movie history. The two principal actors of the film, James Stewart and Stewart McNally, spent a great deal of time practicing with their rifles (in Stewart's case Mann often found him walking around the set with bleeding knuckles, the results of his hours of self-training working the classic lever-action Winchester). Their hard work paid of in a tremendous realism.

Format: DVD
This movie is meant to be in Black & White, but comes across as muted greys, an extremely poor "restoration"? I cannot believe this movie HAS been "restored"! It is in very bad condition. It looks flat and grainy beyond belief, there are no pure blacks or pure whites, it looks to me like a television print, the visual "noise" is abominable, in one scene Dan Dureya's shirt erupts in a moire pattern so violent it almost hurts your eyes! The sound is good, I'll give you that. The inteview with Stewart is poor, the interviewer is obvioulsy reading off of a prepared list of questions and often fails to follow up on interesting points as he rushes to get to the next benal question.
Nope, this is another of those great lost opportunities whereby a landmark movie suffers at the hands of the distributors either too lazy or too mean to spend some money restoring the picture to it's original glory. The depth of focus is lost in the mud!!!
Shame on all those involved in this shabby release, it is NOT a fitting tribute to those who made and starred in the original. Don't waste your $$$$ on this DVD as you will be annoyed and frustrated, it is like looking at an old worn out VHS tape played through a knackered VCR on an old portable TeeVee in your kitchen. Instead badger your local Art House Cinema or Film Society to run it, get together some like minded friends,pool your resources, have yard sales, anything to raise the cash to pay to have it shown on the big screen..Just don't judge this movie by this lacklustre DVD, & to think you pay mre for a DVD as you expect it to be better quality than a VHS tape!

One of the greatest old westerns. Would recommend it to anyone. Took a long time to get it but it was worth waiting for

This is a great movie for any person who likes westerns. It does take some unsuspecting turns. It's a good clean shoe for almost any age. I just wish it was in colour.

It's a real shame how badly this film was transferred to DVD. Much of the DVD is fine; some sections of it look better than I've ever seen in any other format, displaying the excellence of the black-and-white photography. But other sections are grainy and marred by distracting visual noise, and that isn't the worst of it: In several places during the film, the DVD "jumps" from one scene to another because obviously the source material was so poor! It's like watching a worn-out, popping film in a run-down theater! This is something I can't ever recall on a DVD transfer of a film as exciting and important as "Winchester '73."
The interview with Jimmy Stewart as he watches the film with the interviewer is interesting, but the "Winchester" DVD overall ranks as a *MAJOR* disappointment.

Format: DVD
The rifle is a coveted prize at a western shooting contest hosted by the western legend, Wyatt Earp (Will Geer). It is a perfect Winchester that won't be sold, only won. Two brothers compete for the prize; both trained by the same man, one good, and one evil. Right prevails is the shootout.
But Evil will not accept the results and steals the rifle. What follows then is a series of changes of hand for the "One of a Thousand" Winchester. From wily gun traders to Indian raiders to quick-draw outlaws, the gun's odyssey is followed in this classic western with the good brother (James Stewart) seeking not only to regain his treasure but to put an end to a lifelong obsession.
Shelly Winters comes along for the wild ride and look for Tony Curtis and Rock Hudson in very unpredictable cameo appearances.
