Product Description

Three westerns starring Errol Flynn. In 'Montana' (1949), Flynn stars as Australian sheep rancher Lane, who takes on the cattle barons of Montana. They see Lane as an interloper and treat his profession with disdain, but he means to buy land there, so they'd better learn to like it... or else. In 'Rocky Mountain' (1950), Captain Lafe Barstow (Flynn) is attempting to build an army in the West for the faltering Confederacy, but fails his mission when the patrol becomes marooned on a rocky mountain after saving a stagecoach from an Indian attack. Finally, in 'San Antonio' (1950), cattleman Clay Hardin (Flynn) attempts to expose a San Antonio saloon bar owner who he believes to be the ringleader of a band of cattle rustlers. Various shoot-outs, brawls and chases ensue.

Synopsis

Though primarily known for his roles as a swashbuckler, Errol Flynn was as skilled with a six-shooter as he was a rapier. This collection of Westerns starring the dashing actor include Montana, Rocky Mountain, and San Antonio.

Warner Brothers have short changed the UK once again. The Region 1 version of this collection features four movies, but the UK is missing "Virginia City". Get real Warners, why should we always miss out.
All four movies are worth having, so, if you want all four, go for the Region 1 collection.

Format: DVD
The three movies that make up this set are, for the most part, conventional westerns with plenty of action and a fair amount of entertainment value. They depend heavily on Errol Flynn's charm and star quality. The exception is Rocky Mountain. Alone among the others it packs a real punch and offers us Flynn as a man who doesn't charm, woo or perform stunts. It's a very good movie and a quality performance.

Rocky Mountain (1950):
Lafe Barstow, a captain in the Confederate army, and his seven men are holed up in the Nevada Mountains vainly waiting for promised assistance from a California renegade. Their assignment was to raise an army of Confederate sympathizers in California. It's 1865. They've rescued a stage driver and a woman passenger, the fiancée of a Union officer, from an Indian attack. They've tricked and captured a Union patrol. And they know Shoshone warriors are gathering in force to wipe everyone out.

This was the last western Flynn made. Warner Brothers put as few resources into the making of this movie as they could get away with. There are a handful of actors, with only Flynn being a name, and perhaps 50 extras on horseback. It was shot at one location outside Gallup and on what looks like just one studio set. It's in black and white. The screenplay is workmanlike, but in the best sense of the word. About a third of the movie is shot at dusk, night or early morning when a lot of set deficiencies can be covered up. In fact, Rocky Mountain is probably the smallest scale movie Flynn ever made.

It's poetic justice that Rocky Mountain turns out to be a very good film, especially because of its small scale. The movie didn't have the budget to screw things up by trying to turn the story into something bigger than it was.

I have to agree with the reviewer who asks - why are we being short changed! Shame on Warners!

I also must agree with the reviewer who states that Rocky Mountain is a great film. I loved it. It is one I hadn't seen before and made the whole purchase worthwhile. I wasn't expecting it to be any good as Errol's later films always get criticised, but this was excellent - unpredictable. I can see why it wasn't a box office hit, it's a strange movie in many ways. BUT I really enjoyed it!
