Cahill U.S. Marshal 1973
J.D.

-- Commentary with Director Andrew McLaglen: He talks about nearly all of the actors, and he takes special delight in pointing out which exterior scenes were shot outdoors and which were shot on huge soundstages where the light could be controlled. Although the commentary has many gaps where McLaglen falls silent, this is a case where the opportunity to preserve cinema history wasn't missed.

-- The Man Behind the Star (7:47): This vintage promotional featurette mixes a somewhat romanticized history of U.S. frontier marshals with information about the film.

-- Theatrical Trailer (2:46): "Cahill was a man who'd done a lot. There was a lot left to do".
