This time we have THE MAN BEHIND THE GUN (1953), THUNDER OVER THE PLAINS (1953) and RIDING SHOTGUN (1954). Another three cracking little B-Westerns with Scott once again the stoic hero ably supported by the likes of Philip Carey, Lex (Tarzan) Barker & Wayne Morris. Acclaimed director Andre de Toth directed the second and third of these films. He (de Toth) also directed four other Randolph Scott westerns. Another four hours plus of western drama in glorious Technicolor. Best of the Three in my opinion is RIDING SHOTGUN. Good quality DVD transfers and all at a bargain price from Amazon. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for all Randolph Scott fans and western movie aficionados in general.

wonderful value 3 films for a fiver,i know their b-westerns but they are 3 decent films ,what i would like to point out is that this region 1 disc plays perfectly in a region 2 dvd player i have played it in 5 different players with no problems and they aren't multi region players.this set is better than the other triple offering which surprised me because i thought this was the weaker set ,for a fiver i would highly recommened this set.

Warner Home Video presents "TRIPLE FEATURE: The Man Behind the Gun / Thunder Over the Plains / Riding Shotgun" - Randolph Scott --- (Dolby digitally remastered) --- relive those thrilling days when Randolph Scott took us down the dusty trails with hard riding and straight shooting hitting the bull's eye with excitement every time... the Randolph Scott series of B-Westerns were a staple of Saturday matinees in the 1940s and 1950s ... don't miss any of the Randolph Scott features loaded with action that will leave you wanting more of his B-Western adventures.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Man Behind The Gun and Riding Shotgun. 13 Feb 2011
By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER

The Man Behind The Gun.

He wasn't born, he was issued!

Randolph Scott is Major Ransome Callicut, who goes undercover as a schoolteacher in 1850's California to hopefully thwart separatist plotting as secessionist fervour starts to boil over.

The Man Behind The Gun is directed by Felix E. Feist and written by John Twist from a story by Robert Buckner. It is shot in Technicolor by Bert Glennon (Wagon Master) out of Bell Ranch, Santa Susana, California. Joining Scott in the cast are Patrice Wymore, Dick Wesson, Philip Carey, Lina Romay & Alan Hale Jr.

It's true enough that material such as this, well more it's themes and basic story, deserves a better movie than what this ultimately is. Yet to shout down this film for not being a finely tuned politico piece is a touch harsh one feels. This is after all, a modestly budgeted Oater out of Warner Brothers that comes at a time when Randolph Scott was knocking out Oaters for both WB and Columbia at a rate of knots! Scott was three years away from starting a run of film's with Budd Boetticher that would finally realise his talents, whilst simultaneously giving the serious Western fan some gems to shout about from the saloon rooftops. So where does The Man Behind The Gun sit in the pantheon of 50s Westerns? Well a better director than Felix Feist would have helped since the material called for someone interested in the more psychological aspects of the characters. The afore mentioned Boetticher is a given of course, while another of Scott's 50s directors, André De Toth, would have enjoyed the intrigue and underhand core for sure.

Still, given its short running time, Feist does manage to craft an action packed movie.
