Mike’s Picks: ‘Man Without a Star’ and ’10 North Frederick’

Man Without a Star

Kino Lorber, Western, $29.99 Blu-ray, NR.
Stars Kirk Douglas, Jeanne Crain, Claire Trevor, William Campbell, Richard Boone.
1955.
Released without too much fanfare but given some pacing oomph by a legendary director who’d found himself needing work (King Vidor), this cattle-heavy Western with sex is a Kirk Douglas vehicle through and through, one of the more entertaining outdoor dustups from Red River’s Borden Chase, who shared writing honors here with D.D. Beauchamp.
Extras: Includes a commentary by Toby Roan.

10 North Frederick

Available via ScreenArchives.com
Twilight Time, Drama, $29.95 Blu-ray, NR.
Stars Gary Cooper, Diane Varsi, Suzy Parker, Geraldine Fitzgerald, Ray Stricklyn.
1958. With human tragedy at its core and a Gary Cooper performance that’s among his most poignant, this told-in-flashback movie gets stronger as it progresses after many of its mysteries eventually get explained.
