* Very few colorized prints of THE BIG SKY exist. After an extensive search we found what we believe to be the best surviving elements. We are pleased to make this available here on DVD. One should not expect state-of-the-art re-mastered quality - in places the print is a bit rough - but we offer a treasure for those who truly wish to see this wonderful classic Kirk Douglas western in COLOR!
