'Shane' Blu-ray Delayed

Posted Tue May 14, 2013 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The celebrated western won't be riding to Blu-ray now until August.

As previously reported, Warner Brothers was preparing 'Shane' for Blu-ray on June 4, but now the date has been changed to August 13 in order to complete remastering in the original 1:37 aspect ratio.

Acclaimed director George Stevens' legendary rendition of the quintessential Western myth earned six Academy Award nominations, and made Shane one of the classics of the American cinema. The story brings Alan Ladd, a drifter and retired gunfighter, to the assistance of a homestead family terrorized by a wealthy cattleman and his hired gun (Jack Palance). In fighting the last decisive battle, Shane sees the end of his own way of life. Mysterious, moody and atmospheric, the film is enhanced by the intense performances of its splendid cast.

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but the suggested list price has been set at $19.98.
