Leon Alastray (ANTHONY QUINN), a rebel on the run from the Mexican Army, escapes to the remote village of San Sebastian, where the locals believe he’s a holy man. But when Leon discovers that the area has been devastated by savage Yaqui attacks, he knows he cannot hide the warrior within himself. Revealing his true identity, he leads villagers against the deadly threat, while at the same time battling another enemy: Teclo (CHARLES BRONSON), an antagonist with a shocking secret of his own. As the tension mounts, the people of San Sebastian prepare for an explosive fight to regain their courage… and reclaim their town.



This release comes with a Vintage Making-of featurette and the Theatrical Trailer.


VIDEO – 5/5, AUDIO – 4½/5

Warner Bros. releases Guns for San Sebastian onto Blu-ray where it’s been given a new 1080p high-definition transfer and is presented in the original 2.35 widescreen aspect ratio. While WB may not be able to compete with the likes of Shout Factory or Arrow when it comes to bonus material, in my book they are still tops with the picture quality on their catalog titles. This is another great picture, detail is sharp, colors are in keeping with the western settings (so the palette is more toward natural tones) and the original film grain and noise is still present.

The movie comes with a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 Mono track which was more than adequate. Dialogue comes across with good clarity and there was no discernible pops, hisses or other flaws with the track.
