  • Critic Reviews for How the West Was Won All Critics (20) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (18) | Rotten (2) | DVD (3) It would be hard to imagine a subject which lends itself more strikingly to the wide-screen process than this yarn of the pioneers who opened the American West.

  • These were 'How The West Was Re-won" and "How The West Was Redone". Both used Long Beach and the LA Forum as did the official release. Well Pagey has done the right and un-brickwalled it and now it really breathes.

  • How The West Was Won uses an interesting technique for filming called Cinerama. It is basically style of shooting a film using three cameras at the same time. It creates a very wide aspect ratio, where your peripheral vision is intended to be engulfed by on-screen content.

  • But "How the West Was Won" did not start out as a traditional weekly series. The original pilot TV-movie aired in January 1976, and was titled "The Macahans." The following year, in February of 1977, a short first season, consisting of three 2-hour episodes was aired.

  • How The West Was Won is also available as 3-CD and 4 LP Super Deluxe Boxset. Housed in a lift top box, it contains: - Remastered audio on three CDs and four 180-gram vinyl LPs. - DVD of album in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround and PCM Stereo, plus photo gallery. - High-def download card of all stereo audio content at 96kHz/24 bit.

  • "How the West Was Won" has long struggled on home video. First on VHS, then on DVD, the Cinerama image looked downright terrible, as the seams between the three panels were always visible, often distractingly so.

  • Contained between these layers is How the West Was Won. First released in 2003, it brings together two June 1972 shows from California. What sets it apart from the other live releases is that while they capture Led Zeppelin before or after their peak, West captures them at their magical peak.

  • Movies and TV shows are Certified Fresh with a steady Tomatometer of 75% or higher after a set amount of reviews (80 for wide-release movies, 40 for limited-release movies, 20 for TV shows), including 5 reviews from Top Critics.

  • How the West Was Won"derful". This was the first time my husband and I saw this western. It was the perfect long movie for a lazy Saturday with a fire in the fire place, a glass of Merlot, cozy clothes and a couch.

  • How the West Was Won was the hot ticket attraction of 1963. The exciting three-panel Cinerama feature played to reserved seat roadshow audiences for almost two years. The exciting three-panel Cinerama feature played to reserved seat roadshow audiences for almost two years.
