"As these 2 and many other early John Wayne movies that he made for Republic are in the public domain,it often results in many DVD and VHS releases of the movies with some releases having excellent picture and sound quality, others not as fortunate usually from companies such as GoodTimes, Madacy, UAV Entertainment, Platinum Disc Corporation and oterhs. In this case, the picture and sound on this GoodTimes DVD release are excellent for these 2 movies in the public domain. Although there are no extras to note of aside from scene access, the picture and sound quality make up for it and for this low price and this is a dual sided, dual layer DVD so you get Angel and The Badman on 1 side and on the other side of the DVD, you get Winds of The Wasteland. You get the original B&W movies with their original mono sound in the original aspect ratio being full frame as there was no widescreen at the time. If you are a vintage western fan, a fan of classic movies, or a John Wayne fan, this dual sided, dual layer DVD is a must have, especially if you can find it in discount store (Wal-Mart, KMart, etc.)budget DVD bins for about .... I do have another DVD of Angel and The Badman on a Platinum Disc Great American Western series DVD which has apparently came from either a VHS tape dub complete with the "blips" in the imaging during 1 part of the movie."
