"A Giant-sized motion picture, lusty, rousing andiwith great sweep!" -Variety

One of Hollywood's greatest directors teams with a cast of incredible screen legends for this bold, sweeping tale of a ship's captain who ventures west to find a hotbed of jealousy, hatred and dangerous rivalries. As the reluctant hero is thrust into the maelstrom, he must summon all of his resolve to save not only his own life, but also the life of the woman he loves.

William Wyler directs this action-packed adventure that triumphs as "a work of art" (Motion Picture Herald). Starring Gregory Peck, Charlton Heston, Jean Simmons, Chuck Connors and Burl Ives, this magnificently entertaining epic will take your breath away with unbridled suspense, exhilarating excitement and explosive drama on a grand scale.

      " ENTERTAINMENT FOR MY-SELF": am widowed!! Because of my age, a most senior citizen, raised in the good ole U.S.A.; being able to again enjoy movies distancing back to the 1940's, 50's and 60's, in good quality to boot;. My warmest and sincerest thanks to TCM!

        again i view this video at home at my comfort and leisure,this movie features lots of drama and action scenes with some of my very favorite stars--i always find that watching a movie several times over a year or so i always catch onto some subtle scene that i had missed earlier--so always worth watching repeatedly-and i just always enjoy seeing it again just for plain entertainment fun

              I really enjoy a good western and this is one of the best of its time. Great actors, scenery and plot. I had seen a few negative reviews elseware, regarding the quality of copies of this movie from various other sources. I didn't order the Blue Ray but this was a very good DVD. I'd recommend TCM to anyone concerned about the quality of an example of an older film.

                  Comments about this product:

                  "The Big Country" is one of my favourite movies to watch. The dvd is well protected and I will watch it at least once a month. The length is good and so many tops stars who work well together. I do wish there had been a series with the same stars but that didn't happen then and they all went on to star in more movies. Excellent choice.
