Where is this movie available for purchase?
13 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie on late night TV in 1975. Actually that is the only time I have ever seen it. It must have made some kind of good impression on me or I would not remember it. HBO about 10 years ago made a version called "The Jack Bull," which takes place in Wyoming. HBO's version is nothing compared to the 1969 version with David Warner. This movie was the first time I recognized David Warner, although his career began many years before this movie.

I have searched for years to find a video--tape or DVD--of the movie but have found none available.

If anyone knows where I can buy a copy, please let me know. I once thought that all movies were available but I have never been able to find this one.
