Blu-ray Release: Lawman

Blu-ray Release Date: Sept. 19, 2017
Price: Blu-ray $29.95
Studio: Twilight Time

Directed by Michael Winner (The Mechanic) and written by Gerald Wilson (The Stone Killer), Lawman (1971) offers a few savvy tweaks on a classic Western tale: a dogged sheriff (the great Burt Lancaster, Sweet Smell of Success) is determined to bring to justice a rancher (Lee J. Cobb, 12 Angry Men) and his hands who accidentally killed an old man during a drunken spree.

Burt Lancaster is the Lawman.

The incomparable Robert Ryan (Caught) co-stars along with Robert Duvall (Crazy Heart) and Sheree North; the film is further distinguished by a score from the one and only Jerry Fielding (The Wild Bunch).

Bonus features on the Blu-ray include an isolated score and the original theatrical trailer.
