Sorry I can't rate and review this DVD as I only got the sound and no picture on it. Sounded like fun, though.

Hilarious Western insanity. . . .
John A. Kuczma | Marietta, GA USA | 12/01/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you can imagine a comic twist on Wild West legends, it's probably in this film. Burt Lancaster shows a part of his talent that few are aware of: he is a superior comic actor. A sprawling lampoon of Calvary vs Indians, whiskey-swilling miners vs temperance workers and man vs woman, the Hallelujah Trail is a mad-cap roller coaster ride through the back trails of the classic western. If you love boots and saddles, comedy or Burt Lancaster, this is a must see. Just keep the tissues handy and find a soft place for falling out of your chair or off the couch. They don't get much better."
Hallelujia, now I see it !!!

"John Sturges directed so many of my favorite films, from "The Great Escape" to "The Magnificent Seven", that I have to pay hommage to his great humorous homage to The West. One of the earliest films to lampoon it's leads (but nicely) it stands out as both a tribute to all the great Westerns as well as a campy send-up as well. And what a cast! Burt Lancaster demonstrated a talent for comedy that I would never have thought at the time. And Jim Hutton, Brian Keith, Lee Remick....One of Sturges' regular contributers, Elmer Bernstein wrote an emcompassing score that went right to the heart of things.Very recommended, especially if you loved westerns."
Terrible DVD Transfer

"MGM has made the decision to offer this presentation of Hallelujah Trail on one side (two layers) of a DVD disc, requiring more compression of the video image than we normally see on higher quality DVD's. This has resulted in a DVD that is positively painful to watch due to digital artifacts. MGM should be embarrased about releaseing such an inferior product."
