Description: John J. Macreedy (Spencer Tracy) doesn't know it, but when he steps off the train at the jerkwater town of Black Rock, he will soon find himself the object of fear, hatred and even a murder plot. The altruistic Macreedy came to Black Rock to hand over a posthumous military award to a local Japanese man whose son had died gallantly in the Second World War. What Macreedy couldn't know when he stepped off of that train was that the town had a shameful secret, one that must be kept at all costs.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION - Please be aware, that this movie is first time ever submission in MKV format. XviD encodes are still preferred, as they are easily played by almost all software and hardware players, in contradiction to MKV files which store multiple containers in one format, but cause problems to older media players. Most of latest media players and software media players like Zoom Player, PotPlayer, MPlayer, VLC Player, GOM Player, ALLPlayer, Elmedia Player, foobar2000 and PowerDVD and media centers such as Plex, Boxee, PS3 Media Server and XBMC have native Matroska support. My source decided to encode to Matroska and as I strive to post only highest possible quality of encodes, I decided to leave the file as it is, as re-encoding of such file is a waste of time, resources and quality and other available XviD releases were rather mediocre quality 700 MB files. In case of any problems with playing the movie, please leave a comment, I will try to help. For more information on MKV format, please follow this Wikipedia entry

Dual audio track information

This movie contains two audio tracks, one is original English, and the other is an excellent John Sturges audio commentary from Criterion DVD edition of the movie. You can use VLC Player to easily choose between any of audio tracks or you can use VirtualDub to get rid of any of audio tracks by following these steps:

1. Download Virtualdub from that WWW address:

http://www.virtualdub.org/download.html

2. Download your version, unzip the files, start the program by running VirtualDub.exe

3. From “File” tab choose “Open video file” and find your dual audio file on your HDD (or you can simply drag and drop movie file into program window)

4. If any warining window pops up, just click on “OK”

5. From “Video” tab choose “Direct stream copy” option (very important, do not miss that step)

6. From “Audio” tab choose which audio stream you want to use, usually English is Stream 1, and commentary is on Stream 2, but to be 100 % sure use preview option that VD provides by clicking on “Play” button on the bottom of program window when video file is loaded. Of course you can get rid of original audio and save the file with commentary that way too, just by choosing other stream

7. From “File” tab choose “Save AVI file”, put movie name and choose destination folder and then click on OK. Program will start its job after no more than 2 minutes your only one audio track movie should be ready.
