A new German DVD of One Eyed Jacks, which advertises itself as the best version worldwide. So far, as it ain’t has a very good picture.
But for only 6,99 € it is a pretty good DVD.
And the film is better than I remembered it. The acting is indeed great, and often surprisingly naturalistic. The film has also great sets and costumes and the photography and the directing is also very good. The atmosphere is often 10 years ahead of its time and the brutishness and the psychological complexity was pretty unusual for a late 50s western. Only some melodramatic aspects are a bit too soft, and the final image looks too optimistic.
One of the best western of the 50s. 9/10
