COMES A HORSEMAN (1978 / PLEASE SEE TRANSFER NOTE) (SPECIAL PROMOTION) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Jason Robards, James Caan, Jane Fonda, George Grizzard, Richard Farnsworth, Jim Davis, Mark Harmon
Directed By:  Alan J. Pakula
Composed By:  Michael Small

“A misfit Western, with Pakula using Jane Fonda’s uncanny resemblance to her father to set up a curious tangential relationship, respectful and rebellious, with classic Western mythology…visually superb.”
– Time Out London

“The delight of the film lies not only in Pakula’s recognition of what makes a cliché an archetype, and what he does with his film’s archetypal content, but also in the sheer audacity of the Pakula style.”
– Robert C. Cumbow, Parallax View

Set in the American West of the 1940s, director Alan J. Pakula’s Comes a Horseman (1978) gives us a pair of little-guy ranchers (Jane Fonda, James Caan) who join forces against the depredations of a ruthless land baron (Jason Robards) determined to expand his empire at whatever cost. Shot by the incomparable Gordon Willis, with music by the great Michael Small, and featuring an indelible Oscar®-nominated performance from longtime stuntman Richard Farnsworth.

A NOTE ABOUT THE TRANSFER: While Twilight Time believes Comes a Horseman to be a fine, and generally overlooked hidden treasure from the 1970s, and worthy of a second look by Blu-ray aficionados, we recognize it has not survived in the greatest of shape. We hope that those of you who care enough to buy a copy will forgive the unusually high (for a TT release) level of “speckling” (minus density) and general debris that mar the work of master cinematographer, Gordon Willis, in this hi-def presentation. We have rejected many other titles and transfers for similar reasons, but after some consideration decided this film was too important to let go. In light of this fact, we are offering it at a reduced price ($22.95 SRP) to encourage those on the fence about it. TT strives always to strike a balance between a duty to preserve the legacy of film history, as well as presenting the very best version of a film in hi-def as possible under the circumstances.
