Good Movie, Not-Great Picture, [Poor] sound

"The sound is the main problem with this DVD edition of Chino (that and the fact the film is presented "full screen"). The picture is about as good as it would be on an average vhs tape, but the sound is sometimes muffled, sometimes echoing--so much so in parts that it sounds as if they just played the film in a big room and recorded the soundtrack with the mic on a cheap boombox. But the movie itself is very good.
And to make up for the sound quality, this DVD offers an episode of Bronson's 1950's TV show, "Man with a Camera," unavailable anywhere else (for now).
So, for [price range], yes. For [price]--don't bother."

"I've like Charles Bronson ever since I saw him in Dirty Dozen. This DVD consists of Chino and Man with a camera. Chino is a well made film with Bronson as a half-indian horse rancher. It features beautiful horses and a lot more. This important film in his career is also known as Valdez, the half-breed. The other three important characters that is a teenage runaway is played by Vincent Van Patten, Maral, a wealthy breedy by Marcel Bozzuffi and his sister is played by Jill Ireland. Man with a Camera is a b/w TV preogramme. In it is a young Charles Bronson playing Mike Kovac, a photographer. It is an interesting TV presentation. This DVD also contains and introduction by the great Tony Curtis and an original trailer for Kid Galahad starring the King, Elvis Prestley."
