PONY SOLDIER

The Blu-ray edition of this 1952 film is the first release from Twilight Time that I found genuinely disappointing.  It’s a mediocre Western starring Tyrone Power given a mediocre Blu-ray transfer — the images don’t have the brilliance and depth that a Technicolor film from this era can and should have on Blu-ray.

The only real virtue of the release is the isolated score by Alex North, which is expertly crafted and sure-footed dramatically.  If you watch the picture with only the isolated score playing, and think of the images as merely illustrations to an admirable piece of program music, the experience is actually quite enjoyable.
