Note
  • Based on the book "With His Pistol in His Hand" by Américo Paredes
  • Originally released as a motion picture in 1982
  • This DVD release adheres to how the film was originally released without subtitles for the Spanish spoken by its Mexican American characters, so that English-speaking viewers would experience the Spanish dialogue with the same limited or nonexistent understanding that the film's English-speaking characters do. In keeping with that intention on the part of the filmmakers, the Spanish has not been subtitles in English for this release
  • Widescreen (1.85:1 aspect ratio)
  • Restored in 2016 by the Academy Film Archive
  • Special features: New 2K digital restoration; new interview with producer and actor Edward James Olmos; new interview with Chon A. Noriega; cast and crew panel from 2016 with Edward James Olmos, Robert M. Young, Moctesuma Esparza, Reynaldo Villalobos, Bruce McGill, Tom Bower, Rosanna DeSoto and Pepe Serna; plus, in accompanying booklet, an essay by film scholar Charles Ramirez Berg
