Kirk Douglas (Ace in the Hole) and Anthony Quinn (The River’s Edge) headline the suspenseful John Sturges-directed 1959 western Last Train from Gun Hill, now available for the first time on Blu-ray as part of the Paramount Presents line.

The film follows U.S. Marshal Matt Morgan (Douglas) on the trail of his wife’s killer.  Adding a dark twist to the tale, the suspect’s father is Morgan’s longtime friend, cattle baron Craig Beldon (Quinn).  Morgan is determined to capture the killer and take him away by the 9:00 train, against all odds.

Remastered from a 6K film transfer of the original VistaVision negative, the limited-edition Blu-ray includes a new Filmmaker Focus with film historian Leonard Maltin, access to a digital copy of the film, as well as original theatrical trailers for Last Train from Gun Hill and other titles. It comes in collectible packaging featuring a foldout image of the film’s theatrical poster and an interior spread with key movie moments.
