Pale Rider saddles up in high definition

Warner Home Video has added the Clint Eastwood Western Pale Rider to their August release line-up as a Blu-Ray Disc version, we have just learned.

After corporate mining boss Coy LaHood (Richard Dysart) begins a campaign of terror to drive independent pan miners out of the area, a nameless stranger called Preacher (Clint Eastwood) rides into the underdogs’ camp. He becomes their avenger. The tycoon then hires a badge-wearing killer and his duster-shrouded deputies, men loyal to whomever pays the most. LaHood pays gold. But in a climactic shootout to remember, Preacher pays in lead.

Arriving on a BD-25 single-layer Blu-Ray Disc, the release will feature a 1080p widescreen transfer of the movie. No other specs have been announced. It appears as if this release will be devoid of extras, pretty much the same way the existing DVD version is.

“Pale Rider” will saddle up on August 26 and can be yours for $28.99.
