Epic 19th century western which follows groups of families striving for a better life as they travel west across the prairie land of America, surviving the Civil War, Indians and hardship along the way.

An all-star cast feature in a picture so huge that it took three top directors to shoot it. Three separate lenses were used to film the picture at a total width ratio of (2.89:1). This is further projected in the fully restored crystal-clear, pixel perfect Blu-Ray release, which boasts the most incredible picture quality I have ever seen on any hi-def disc.

•2-disc Blu-Ray edition includes:
*Fully restored 2.89:1 widescreen edition of the movie
*Alternate "Smilebox version" (the picture is curved to accomodate the extreme wide lens)
*Dolby TrueHD 5.1 audio
*Audio commentary
*Documentary
*Theatrical Trailer
